Walmart Wellness Day Features Free Health Screenings

You most likely already value the effects of practicing wellness . Especially if you have a little one (or more than one) depending on you.

But do you really know how you’re doing? A check-up can give you the peace of mind of knowing that you're on the right track to a healthy future or help spark positive changes in your health and your life.

Walmart is making it easy for you to take charge of your health by hosting Walmart Wellness Day, the largest health-screening event in the nation. The event, which was called “America’s Biggest Health Fair” last year, will take place from noon-4 p.m. local time on Saturday, Oct. 15 at Walmart stores nationwide.

Walmart will give free blood glucose and blood pressure tests, vision screenings (only at stores with vision centers), product samples and information on health care insurance. Additionally, Walmart’s licensed pharmacists will offer low-cost immunizations (most insurances accepted) in all Walmart pharmacies in the US.

No appointments are necessary, but it’s important to note that services are on a first-come, first-served basis. For more information, visit Walmart.com/healthcare.

Walmart has conducted thousands of health screenings over the past several years, some of which may have had lifesaving results. According to a Walmart pharmacy manager in Everett, Penn., one patient's readings during last year’s wellness event “were so alarming that she went immediately to the emergency room where she was treated for a hypertensive emergency.”

In addition to operating its own pharmacies, vision centers and Care Clinics, Walmart also helps its customers to live heather lives by providing a comprehensive assortment of preventative and wellness products in the following categories: grocery, electronics, sporting goods, home, apparel and consumables in stores and online.
