Richmond Hill Pharmacy will hold its ninth annual health fair from 9 a.m.-4 p.m. Friday, Oct. 12 and 26, in Towne Center, 2409 Highway 17 in Richmond Hill.
Free blood-pressure and glucose testing will be offered, along with free glucose-meter upgrades. Flu vaccinations will be offered for $25, and pneumonia vaccinations for $35 with a doctor’s prescription. Flu and pneumonia vaccinations are free for Medicare patients who bring their Medicare card. People older than 65 and others at high risk for pneumonia are advised to receive the vaccine every five years. Zostavax, the vaccination for shingles, also will be available with a doctor’s prescription. Pharmacists and staff will be on hand to answer questions and provide health information.
“Our goal is to positively impact the health and quality of life of our local community,” pharmacy owner Al Dixon said. “The screenings, information and demonstrations we provide are meant to increase overall health awareness, and motivate the members of our community to take charge of their health by making positive choices all year round.”
Richmond Hill Pharmacy, part of the Coastal Family of Pharmacies, also includes Hinesville Pharmacy in Hinesville and Medical Center Pharmacy in Savannah.
