THE BRONX - Many Bronx families spent the day Wednesday at Yankee Stadium to get free immunizations.

The ballpark opened its own health clinic for a day with the help of Lincoln Medical Center. This is the eighth year the two have teamed up to get Bronx kids ready to go back to school.

Every child who got an immunization also received a ticket to a game.

Lincoln Hospital will continue giving free shots on its premises for the rest of the week.
