Appointments are required and take approximately 30-45 minutes. Some cities also offer individual appointments outside of the monthly clinic times, see below for how to schedule. 

Monthly Check Up Clinics:  ​In the interest of the health and safety of Anoka County residents and the COVID-19 concerns, all CAR SEAT CLINICS are currently SUSPENDED until further notice.  ​(3/13/2020)

Individual Car Seat Checks

While the car seat check up clinic events give you one-on-one attention and are open to all Anoka County residents, sometimes the schedule doesn't work out. Some of our coalition members offer appointments! Please call or email ahead of time (one week in advance is recommended)to your city of residence for an appointment.

Dates and times vary at each agency, and availability is not guaranteed. You need to be a resident in the city you contact.
