Not everyone agrees with vaccinations but, for those who do, here is a way some of you can get them free.

According to the El Paso Fire Department, reported flu cases have risen 90 percent this year, (epfd.org), leading the city to extend its free vaccine program through March of 2020. The free vaccinations are available to El Paso and Hudspeth county residents who don't have medical insurance, are 18 or over and/or those on Medicaid.

Free blood pressure and glucose screenings are also available and free pneumonia vaccines are being offered to residents 65 or older. They will be offered at the EPFD Safety, Health & Outreach Center, (SHOC), and 1 area Fire Station. (See Below) For more info, click here.
