Walmart is hosting a Wellness Day on Saturday April 23, where customers can receive free glucose, cholesterol, BMI and blood pressure screenings as well as COVID-19 vaccines and affordable immunizations like shingles, pneumonia, tetanus, hepatitis, HPV and flu at pharmacies nationwide.

Walmart’s quarterly Wellness Day event on Saturday, April 23 will take place in more than 4,600 pharmacies across the country. Event will take place from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. local time on April 23. Louisiana stores will also feature vision screenings to make it even easier for customers to access the resources they need.

According to a release from the company, the goal of Walmart Wellness Day is to encourage customers to get healthy and stay on a healthy track by helping them know their numbers and then seek care to improve their lifestyles. Knowing your numbers is just a start but armed with that information you can make decisions and track your health improvement.
