Free June Vaccines, Fire Extinguishers & Carbon Monoxide Alarms for EP Residents
As the flu season subsides the El Paso Health Department and the El Paso Fire Department are teaming up once again for the one last round of vaccinations for the summer.
Flu season is pretty much done but there will be one last chance this month to take advantage of the “Vaccinations for Health” program which provides vaccinations and basic health screenings for El Pasoans ages 18 and above who don’t have private medical insurance or are on Medicaid. The free services include: free blood pressure and glucose screenings, colorectal screening kits to patients 50 and over and influenza and pneumonia vaccines to those 65 and older.
This clinic will also provide a light brunch for patients and will also be giving away 100 free single use extinguishers or a carbon monoxide alarm courtesy of First Alert. The El Paso Fire Department will also be demonstrating proper extinguisher safety education for families and Sparky the Dalmation will be on site to take pictures with the kids.
Apart from free vaccinations and safety education, the El Paso Health Department will be distributing free vouchers to qualifying families for breast and cervical screenings along with children’s vaccinations.
Free June Clinic:
- Saturday June 24 from 8-11 a.m. at 5415 Trowbridge Dr.
