Students rolled up their sleeves Friday to get the immunizations that are required before the start of the new school year.

Hundreds turned out at Friday's back-to-school health fair. The event also included medical exams and even a little fun.

It is the time of the year when you should be getting your children ready for the school. There are physical exams, screenings, and new vaccine rules.

To help, Illinois State Representative Maria Antonia Berrios hosted her 10th annual back- to-school health fair on the Northwest Side Friday morning and afternoon.

Hundreds of parents and children attended the back-to-school health fair in Haas Park. The fair offered a number of fun events for kids along with free medical services such as immunizations, blood pressure screenings, diabetes exams and vision and hearing screenings.
