CONNECTUS Offers Free Physicals, Vaccinations for Children in July

As back-to-school season draws near, CONNECTUS is doing its part to ensure that local children are fit and receive required immunizations before school resumes.

Throughout the month of July, the community health clinic is offering free physicals and vaccinations for children at its Vine Hill (Nashville) and Priest Lake locations.

It is recommended that children receive a preventative physical yearly, in addition to any sports physicals or physicals required upon starting school. Insurance will be billed for those who are covered -- as is customary with routine physicals -- but the Connectus team is able to assist those who are currently uninsured as well.

Formerly University Community Health Services, CONNECTUS is a Federally Qualified Health Center that provides high-quality, affordable, holistic healthcare for the entire community, including the vulnerable and the under- and uninsured.

The CONNECTUS team serves Nashville and surrounding communities with care customized to each patient, including free translation services offered in a multitude of languages and culturally sensitive care.

Those interested in bringing their children for free physicals or vaccinations should call 615-292-9770 for the Vine Hill and Priest Lake clinics. Additional services are available but may incur cost.
