Special to The PatriotPoliorubell as car let fever these words which once struck fear in the heart of every parent, are now something we only read about in history books, thanks to childhood immunizations.

Berks Visiting Nurses Association's nurses were once consumed with caring for afflicted children and their families, so now our agency has made it our mission to immunize children-preventing the illness before it begins. Berks VNA offers free immunizations to needy children, thanks, in part, to funding from Highmark Blue Shield. This year, Highmark has made a commitment to provide $10,000 to Berks VNA to ensure that the children of Berks County are properly immunized.

Immunizations will be offered at Berks VNA, 1170 Berkshire Blvd., Wyomissing. Call 1-800-346-7848 for an appointment.
