Board of Health is Offering Free Flu Shots and Health Screenings at Bedford Day
September 21, 2019 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm
Come to the Big White Tent for flu shots and health screenings at Bedford Day, Saturday September 21st from 9 am – 12 pm! The Bedford Board of Health is again partnering with Emerson Hospital to provide free health screenings on Bedford Day; however, Emerson’s free screenings this year include only pulmonary function testing, blood pressure screening and body composition screening. No blood draws will take place at Bedford Day. Emerson Hospital will be offering additional services including information and resources pertaining to mental health concerns and the Weight Loss Center staff will be conducting health education opportunities. Early awareness, identification, and intervention of respective health issues can greatly reduce the risk of experiencing negative health outcomes. The Board of Health will provide flu shots to Bedford residents 8 years of age and older. Please bring ID and insurance cards and look for the big white tent.
