The program “Vaccinations for Health” that teams up the El Paso Fire Department with the El Paso Health Department to provide free influenza, blood pressure and glucose screenings to patients 18 and older, and pneumonia vaccines to those 65 and older, will start again in September.

“The wellness and safety of our community is extremely important to us,” said Medical Deputy Chief Robert Arvizu. “We have received our allotment of vaccines for the new flu season, and were are ready to serve the community who attends these two expos.”

Tuesday Sept. 12
