CVS/pharmacy’s “Project Health” Bringing Free Health Screenings During the Month of August


Project Health is a wellness program to raise awareness in multicultural communities about influenza preparedness during National Immunization Awareness Month.

Qualifying participants will receive vouchers redeemable for a flu shot at CVS/pharmacy or MinuteClinic this flu season.

Throughout the month of August, which is National Immunization Awareness Month, CVS/pharmacy’s Project Health (“Proyecto Salud” in Spanish) is offering free health screening events focusing on:

  • vaccination reviews
  • vision acuity
  • glucose
  • blood pressure
  • and BMI (Body Mass Index)

for individuals in multicultural communities who have difficulty accessing preventive care.

Along with these free health screening events, CVS/pharmacy designated Project Health store locations are also holding “Flu Voucher Fridays” each week during the month of August.

Qualifying Project Health attendees who complete the entire health screening process and identify themselves as not having health insurance will be eligible to receive a voucher redeemable for a flu shot at CVS/pharmacy or MinuteClinic this flu season.

The Project Health events will be held at designated CVS/pharmacy locations on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays, from 2 – 6 pm daily with no appointment necessary.
