An update from the Mayo Clinic Injury Prevention Coordinator:
Thank you for your patience and your dedication to child passenger safety! With COVID-19 safety precautions in place, we are glad to have the car seat inspection clinics scheduled for 2021. We can accommodate a limited number of caregivers and families each month. Currently, a waitlist is in place to honor the order of received requests.
Remember: The car seat manufacturer's instructions and your vehicle owner's manual should always be used as a reference when installing your car seat.
Is your child’s car seat properly installed? Do you know a parent who could benefit from this event? Make sure your children are traveling safely in your vehicles by making an appointment for one of the Child Passenger Car Seat Inspection clinics in 2021.
