YHC services for children age 4 and up will continue according to the regular schedule with the opening hours for the public in the afternoon.  Nurses will also be visiting school during the morning hours according to their schedules.

The closure of the Baby Wellness Clinic during the afternoon hours is in connection with preparations for the upcoming Vaccination Week of the Americas (VWA).

VWA runs from April 20-27.  Various activities are being planned, such as a Carnival troupe and community outreach in order to bring about additional awareness concerning the importance of immunization.
