The final fair will be held from 10 a.m. – 3 p.m. on Friday, August 11 at Hayes Bilingual School (971 W. Windlake Avenue) and offers free school-required vaccines for kids without private insurance, lead testing, vision screenings, blood pressure and blood sugar checks, and haircuts.

Free backpacks and school supplies will also be given to children with an up-to-date shot record or those who get vaccinations and lead testing at the fairs. Kids must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian to receive gifts and services.
