The Sedgwick County Health Department is giving free vaccines today from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at 2716 W. Central.
Officials are offering only the MMR vaccine, which protect against measles, mumps and rubella, to combat the recent measles outbreak in the county, according to a Sedgwick County news release.
Officials ask those who think they or their children have been exposed to measles to not attend the clinic.
No out-of-pocket fees will be charged, but Medicare, Medicaid and private insurance will be filed if available.
