TUCSON - Parents in need of a booster seat for their children can pick one up for free from the Pima County Health Department before a new law requiring more children use the seats goes into effect.
The statewide law requiring children ages 5 to 8, under 4 feet 10 inches tall, to sit in booster seat goes into effect on August 2.
The Pima County Health Department has been giving out free booster seats at its immunization clinics since July 2.
Today, the South Office, located at 175 W. Irvington Rd., will be giving away free booster seats from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m.
Families can receive one seat per eligible child while supplies last. For more information on the booster seats, call 243-7736.
