Avoid the back to school rush by attending our “Community Operation” back to school health fairs. AccessHealth has joined forces with Fort Bend County and the City of Missouri City to bring this free, fun-filled, healthy event to the Fort Bend community.

The event will offer FREE immunizations, dental screenings, vision screenings, scoliosis screenings, speech-language screenings, backpacks, and school supplies.  Parents will need to bring their children’s immunization records and come prepared for activities and snacks!

Backpacks will only be issued to children present on the day of the fair.

This year’s health fairs will be held at 400 Austin Street, Richmond, on August 2, and at 307 Texas Parkway, Missouri City, Texas on August 9. Both fairs will be held from 9:00 am until noon.

They are able to provide this event with the support of Fort Bend County, the City of Missouri City, Community Health Choice, CenterPoint Energy, AT&T, Reliant Energy, Legacy Ford, Schramme Construction Company, All Star Storage, Classic Chevrolet, Rotary Club of Fort Bend, Rotary Club of Richmond and the Lions Clubs from Sugar Land, St. John’s Methodist Church and many other community members and local businesses.

AccessHealth is a private, not-for-profit community health center that serves Fort Bend County and the surrounding areas, dedicated to providing integrated health care services to improve the quality of life in the communities it serves without regard to income or circumstance. AccessHealth is a United Way Agency.
