Findley Foundation: Is back-to-school resource for Milwaukee families

MILWAUKEE – The Findley Foundation, which operates the Findley Medical Clinic, is a
complete back-to-school health care resource for families as children return to the
classroom for the new school year.

The Findley Foundation will conduct a Back To School Community Event on Saturday,
Sept. 10, from 1 to 5 p.m., at the Trinity Baptist Church parking lot, 2829 N. Teutonia
Ave., Milwaukee.

Immunizations will be provided for: COVID-19; influenza; tetanus-diphtheria-pertussis
(TDAP); and measles, mumps and rubella (MMR). Tests for lead poisoning in the blood
also will be provided.

Up to 200 families will each receive free food and book bags filled with school supplies
at the event.

Dr. Stephanie Findley, founder and managing director of the Findley Medical Clinic, said
the event will make the updated versions of the Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna second
booster vaccines for COVID-19 available to patients. The updated versions, which
recently received federal approval, target the original virus, as well as the recent
omicron variants, known as BA.4 and BA.5.

The Pfizer-BioNTech second boosters will be available for anyone age 12 or older. The
Moderna second boosters will be available for all adults.

“As our children return to the classroom, where they will be in close proximity to each
other, it’s important that all members of the family are brought up to date with their
vaccines,” said Dr. Findley.

Families also can receive vaccinations, booster shots and more at the Findley Medical
Clinic, 10721 W. Capitol Drive, Suite 110, in Wauwatosa. The clinic has provided more
than 6,600 COVID vaccinations and boosters thus far.

The clinic tries to accommodate walk-ins, but appointments are encouraged by calling
414-988-3079. Health insurance is not required to receive treatment.

In addition to COVID vaccines, other services provided by the clinic include primary
care, urgent care, case management, behavioral health, medication management,
family planning, laboratory services, food resources/pantry, housing resource,
vocational training and more.

Fifty-five percent of the patients served by the Findley Medical Clinic are Black,
Hispanic, Asian or Native American. Many would not otherwise have access to health
care.

People or organizations interested in donating for the supplies at the community event
are encouraged to contact the clinic at 414-988-3079.
