Carson Valley Medical Center has moved its annual community health fair to the middle of autumn, with this year’s event scheduled to take place Oct. 20 from 9 a.m. to noon on its main campus, 1107 Highway 395 N in Gardnerville.
Free flu vaccinations will be offered during this year’s fair (while supplies last), along with a variety of free health screenings including glucose testing, peripheral artery disease screenings (Ankle-Brachial Index), respiratory screenings, blood pressure checks, Body Mass Index readings and more.
The fair will also be a drop-off site for the October Prescription Drug Roundup. Unused or expired prescription drugs, over-the-counter pills, prescription liquids and pet medications will be accepted for disposal.
Douglas County’s Community Emergency Response Team will be on hand providing hands-only CPR training. Care Flight, East Fork Fire Protection and Douglas County Sheriff’s Office will have equipment on site, including DCSO’s Mine-Resistant Ambush Protected vehicle.
