County offering free flu shots, screenings Wednesday
To highlight National Public Health Week, the Yuma County Public Health Services District will be giving free flu shots to the first 200 people who attend its open house Wednesday.
All flu shots after the 200th will be $10.
The event will be held from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Health Department Auditorium, 2200 W. 28th St.
Designed to showcase preventive health care services available to the public, it will offer height and weight measurements, blood pressure checks, Body Mass Index evaluations and HIV testing at no charge. Other free or low-cost exams will also be available.
In addition to the health screenings, the Health District will award an iPod Shuffle to the three grand prize winners of the “What My Family Does to Stay Healthy” coloring contest.
The contest was open to local schoolchildren from kindergarten to sixth grade. All entries qualify for a drawing to win either four Harkins movie passes, a $15 Barnes & Noble gift card or a $10 iTunes gift card.
