(Blackwood, NJ) – To ensure that residents have access to necessary medical care, the Camden County Department of Health and Human Services will be offering free adult health screenings at two locations next week and will also be traveling across the county to administer COVID-19 vaccines.
“These screenings are a great opportunity for those who aren’t able to make it to a doctor’s office to check up on their health,” said Commissioner Virginia Betteridge, liaison to the Department of Health and Human Services. “Additionally, we are going to continue our vaccine pop up clinics to ensure everyone is up to date with their COVID-19 vaccines. Please look at the schedule and consider stopping by one of our locations.”
The adult health screenings are scheduled for Tuesday, March 21 from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. at Wendy Supermarket 3325 Westfield Ave, in Camden and from 12:30 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. at Luz Groceries 3920 Westfield Ave, Pennsauken Township.
The adult health screenings include:
- Blood pressure screenings
- Cancer risk assessment
- Nutrition counseling
- Cholesterol screenings (total cholesterol only)
- Diabetes screening (Fast for 12 hours, eat a hearty meal before you start the fast and take nothing by mouth from then except water or medication until after the test.)
