Stonewall Memorial Health Fair a big hit with community

News Staff's picture

The SMH Health Fair was hosted Tuesday at the Aspermont Community Center, where the hospital’s staff were on hand to meet and greet members of the community, providing education on services and programs, free screenings, and flu shots were also available.

Hospital Administrator Andy Kolb said the hospital reported three confirmed cases of the flu reported earlier this month and the CDC is anticipating another big flu season this year. As the flu vaccination is already on backorder, the health fair was a good opportunity for local community members to get their flu shots early.

In addition to the vaccines, screenings, as well as lunch being provided, people could walk away with bags of free merchandise from pens and markers to hand sanitizer and oral hygiene items. There were also plenty of coloring books and other fun things for the kids, and adults had the chance to win a number of door prizes.
