Even though they know they need to look after their health, many women cite time as a key barrier in getting themselves to the doctor. To help women be more proactive about their health, Samâ€™s Club is hosting convenient, free screenings for both members and the public. These screenings, which can easily be worked into regular weekend errands, are confidential and available at all Samâ€™s Club locations with a pharmacy (612 locations) on Saturday, October 10 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
They are valued at $1502 and include tests for:
- Blood pressure
- Total cholesterol
- HDL (high-density lipoprotein or good cholesterol)
- Body mass index (BMI)
In addition to monthly health screenings, Samâ€™s Club pharmacies provide savings and preventive care to each community they serve, such as year-round immunizations for children and adults.* Licensed pharmacists can administer walk-in flu shots and nine other important immunizations, including the MMR (measles, mumps, rubella) vaccine. Eligible Samâ€™s Club Plus members can also save even more on prescriptions, including exclusive discounts on select generic prescriptions, some of which are available free of charge or at a discounted cost of $4 or $10 for a 30-day supply.
This benefit is part of the Samâ€™s Club Extra Value Drug List, through which Samâ€™s Club Plus members also receive 10-30 percent savings on select brand name medications. Additional information about Samâ€™s Club health and wellness offerings can be found at SamsClub.com and in the Samâ€™s Club exclusive bi-monthly wellness magazine, Healthy Living Made Simple, which reaches approximately eight million members.
