The Opelika Sportsplex and Aquatics Center, in coordination with the Robert and Marjorie Goodson Foundation, the Lee-Russell Council of Governments Agency on Aging and the Opelika City Council, will be hosting a health fair for seniors ages 55 or older on Tuesday, October 1st. The Health Fair will take place from 8 AM until 1 PM in the Sportsplex gymnasium.
The health fair is free and open to the public, and it will feature a variety of free services including blood pressure checks, glucose checks, balance exams, vision screenings, cholesterol checks, hemoglobin screenings, depression screenings, medication evaluations and a plethora of information about senior health and care.
In addition to free testing, seniors can also receive their flu shot while they are at the health fair. Medical Arts Pharmacy will be at the health fair providing the vaccination, protecting seniors within the time frame recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Since it takes two weeks after vaccination for antibodies that protect against the flu to develop in the body, the CDC recommends getting vaccinated before the end of October.
The SportsPlex Senior Heath Fair will also provide access to resources including information on sitter services, hospice, home care, retirement, assisted living and other services available to seniors.
The Opelika SportsPlex Senior Health Fair will be held at 1001 Andrews Road. For more information about the health fair please call (334) 705-5560.
