EPFD announces dates for free Senior flu vaccinations & health services

El Paso Fire and Health Departments announce September dates for free medical services for seniors.

The program “Vaccinations for Health” that teams up the El Paso Fire Department with the El Paso Health Department to provide free influenza and pneumonia vaccines, blood pressure and glucose screenings and colorectal screening kits for seniors will start again in September at the following dates and locations from 8-11 a.m.

The new influenza vaccine for the new flu season will be available.

Remember that the service is FREE to residents 50 and over who 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.
