The City of Minneapolis is encouraging people to get their children caught up on immunizations before school starts back up, and is offering free immunizations on eight dates over the course of the next month.

The city said appointments and insurance aren't needed, and the immunizations will be provided by NorthPoint Health & Wellness Center with the city covering the costs at the events.
