DENVER -- It’s called “Shots for Tots” and the one-day immunization clinic went a long way in the fight against measles.

Tri-County Health Department hosted the clinic at Aurora Fire Station No. 2 and saw a steady stream of parents and children.

The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment announced earlier in the week, confirmation of 2 measles cases.  They are the first 2 cases since 2006.  If not properly vaccinated, measles can be potentially deadly.  Both infected men are expected to be OK.

Saturday’s clinic was for those who didn’t have a health-care provider.
