FREE FLU SHOTS

Free Screening & Activities

Flu Shots

Getting an annual flu shot is the first and best way to protect yourself and your family from the flu. Flu vaccination can reduce flu illness, doctors' visits, and missed work and school due to the flu, as well as prevent flu-related hospitalizations.

Blood Pressure

Measuring and monitoring blood pressure is important because the higher your blood pressure is, the higher your risk of health problems in the future. If your blood pressure is high, it is putting extra strain on your arteries and on your heart - which could contribute to conditions such as heart attack or stroke.

Body Mass Index (BMI)

Your body mass index is a measure of body fat based on your height and weight. A BMI in the low range signals you may be malnourished. Conversely, having a BMI on the higher end can mean your risk of heart disease, diabetes and certain cancers is higher than someone with a normal BMI.

Nutritional Counseling

Your BMI and other details helps our dietician provide you with tips about eating and nutrition that can help you stay healthy.

dABI / PAD

A Digital Ankle Brachial Index (dABI) screening is a quick and painless way to check your risk of peripheral artery disease (PAD). PAD is a condition in which the arteries in your legs or arms are narrow or blocked. People with PAD are at a higher risk for heart attack, stroke and other conditions. PAD is treatable by a medical professional

Fall Prevention

Falls don't just happen, and people don't fall just because they get older. But falls can put you at risk of serious injury. Often, more than one underlying cause or risk factor is involved in a fall. Many falls are linked to a person' physical condition or a medical problem, such as a chronic disease. Other contributing factors, such as safety hazards at home or in the community, could increase your risk of falling. Come learn about simple steps you can take to reduce your fall risk.

Water Safety

We know summer is over and as the days grow shorter and cooler, we aren't spending as much time at the beach or pool. But water is everywhere, and water safety is important year round. Among preventable injuries, drowning is a leading cause of death, and children less than a year old are more likely to drown at home in the bathroom or a bucket. Get water safety tips for home as well as at the beach or pool.

Manage Your Medications

It can be hard to keep track of your prescription, over-the-counter and herbal medications. But it’s important to keep an updated list where you can quickly find it, even during an emergency. It’s also important to take your list with you whenever see your doctor or other health care provider.

Stroke Awareness

Stroke is a medical emergency! When stroke strikes, every minute matters. F.A.S.T. is an easy way to remember how to recognize signs of a stroke, and what to do when warning signs appear.

Huntington Beach Fire & Police

Our local fire and police departments take care of our community every day. We are lucky to have such dedicated individuals who use their skills and equipment to help us when we are in need - and sometimes even save our lives.
