El Paso senior citizens can take advantage of free medical services that include vaccinations for influenza and pneumonia in December.

Fall weather also means that flu season will be rear its ugly head, so the El Paso Health Department along with the El Paso Fire Department will be providing free blood pressure and glucose screenings, colorectal screening kits, including influenza and pneumonia vaccines.

Services are free to residents of El Paso and Hudspeth County who are 50 and over and do not have medical insurance or are on Medicaid. We are encouraging seniors who meet these guidelines to take advantage of the program. The goal of the program is to increase the wellness of our senior citizens in our community who do not have access to these services.
