Get Your Flu Shots at the Canton Health Fair!
The Canton MA Board of Health is holding its annual Health Fair on this Saturday, October 22nd, at Canton High School from 10:00 am to 1:00 pm. All Canton residents over the age of four can come and get their Flu Vaccine free of charge. The Board of Health has used some of its revolving funds to purchase vaccines beyond the allotment given to them by the State so they do ask those who are covered by Medicare or other insurance to bring their insurance cards so they can see reimbursement.
Not only can you get your flu shot at the Canton Health Fair, but there will also be a number of other exhibits where you can get blood pressure screening, body fat analysis, diabetes screening, cholesterol check as well as vision and hearing tests. Meet with various health professionals and social service providers who will be there to answer your health related questions and provide educational materials regarding various health issues.
In addition, the Canton Police Department will be collecting expired and unused medication. Drop it off and they will dispose of it properly.
All this is being provided free of charge courtesy of the Canton MA Board of Health. So, with flu season upon us, be sure to come down and get your flu shot and take charge of your most important asset - your health.
