Walmart hosting Wellness Day Sept. 21

Walmart is hosting Walmart Wellness Day from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday.

Store officials, noting September is Self-Care Awareness Month, said the best way to care for yourself is to take charge of your health.

The events take place throughout Texas Walmarts that have pharmacies, including the locations in Jefferson County.

Low-cost flu shots would be offered.

In addition to heart health information, customers who attend the event can also expect:

  • Free Health Screenings: Total Cholesterol, Glucose, Blood Pressure, BMI and Vision (locations with a vision center)
  • Low-cost Flu Shots and Immunizations
  • Opportunity to speak with a local pharmacist
  • Giveaways
  • Wellness demos

Walmart has provided more than 4 million free screenings to people across the country since its first wellness event in 2014.

These screenings have helped customers discover underlying issues like high blood pressure and diabetes that they now can manage – and in some cases, these screenings have saved customers’ lives, according to company officials.
