EPFD sets October dates, times for ‘Vaccinations for Health’ program

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 October at the following dates and locations.

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

Thursday Oct. 8: EPFD Community Center, 5415 Trowbridge Dr., 1-4 p.m.

Saturday Oct. 10: Station 29, 11977 Pellicano Dr., 8-11 a.m.

Wednesday Oct. 14: Station 11, 314 Leon St., 1-4 p.m.

Thursday Oct. 22: EPFD Community Center, 5415 Trowbridge Dr., 1-4 p.m.

Saturday Oct. 24: Station 15, 115 Shorty Ln., 8-11 a.m.

Tuesday Oct. 27: Station 28, 10820 McCombs St., 1-4 p.m.

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.

“From September 2014 to September 2015, we were able to see 1,133 seniors,” Deputy Chief Robert Arvizu said. “We want to continue the great success of last year into the coming calendar year.”

For more information, citizens are encouraged to call 311 or visit www.ephealth.com.
