TEMPLE, TX — Express ER in Temple is working to make sure local children aren't scared when they come to visit.

Hosting two new events each month, Teddy Bear Clinic and Germ Glow Clinic, children are invited for free to come with their beloved stuffed animal, to help give their animal a physical, X-ray, shot and bandage them.

After the stuffed animal's check up, guests are encouraged to come join in the educational experience of the Germ Glow Clinic, where nurses use black lights to show each kid the germs they have on their hands.

The children then learn how to properly sneeze, cough, and wash/dry their hands to ensure less sick kids in our area.
