Southwest Medical Associates helped some students get ready for the school year Saturday.

They offered free immunizations and sports physicals, during a back-to-school fair at the Flamingo Health Center.

"Immunizations are very vital for children's health," said Dr. Anita Henderson. "It's one of the main ways we prevent serious illnesses for kids and it's very important for kids to get all their immunizations on time, as needed."

But it wasn't all business. There were also food booths and games, along with educational activities.

Some students will go back to school Monday but most will start on Aug. 29.
