Cochise County will offer immunizations later this month to residents of a border town affected by a sewage spill.
    

County health officials said Thursday a second clinic for adults who live and work in Naco will be held Oct. 26.
    
The clinic will have vaccines for Hepatitis A and B and Tetanus available.
    
Cochise County Health and Social Services is conducting this second clinic in response to a flow of raw sewage across the Arizona-Mexico border.
    
Officials say a leak developed last week in a manhole in Naco, Sonora.
    
They say Mexican authorities made several repairs and cleaned pipelines and there has been no flow for nearly two days.
    
County emergency services coordinator Gabe Levin says they are continuing to monitor the situation.
