Sacred Heart to Provide Free Flu Shots and Health Screenings in October
During October, Sacred Heart Health System will provide free flu shots, heart-health and osteoporosis screenings at locations in Pensacola and free flu shots at one location in Gulf Breeze for adults who are poor, elderly or uninsured.
Heart-health screenings will measure blood pressure, blood sugar and total cholesterol, and can detect anemia. The screenings are helpful in diagnosing conditions that put people at high risk for heart attack, stroke, diabetes and other health problems. Osteoporosis screenings measure bone density.
