This is "Doctor's Week" on the News on Six. We have special events planned all this week to focus on your health.

One event is the Blue Cross Blue Shield Caring van, which travels to child care centers all over Tulsa County providing free immunizations to children.

It's equipped with a TV, stickers and animal crackers. Blue Cross workers, Jennifer Hudspeth, say the van's mobility makes it easier for parents to get their kids immunized. "Parents don’t have to worry about getting to a location, especially if they don’t have transportation or they're working - and they know they're coming to their child's daycare center, then they know that their child can be immunized."
