Amigos Locations to host health fair and vaccination clinic on Saturday
As COVID-19 cases continue to grow, more vaccination clinics are offered in and around Lubbock and our friends at United Supermarkets and the United Family are stepping up to help. In fact, on Friday night at Buddy Holly Hall during the First Friday Art Trail, United Supermarkets will be giving away free shots to anyone who wants them. Just look for the pop-up clinic on the east side of Buddy Holly Hall. You can read more about it here.
On Saturday, all Amigos sites will organize a health fair. At the health show, customers will also be able to benefit from free medical screening as well as COVID-19 vaccinations. Each Amigos location should have Moderna, Pfizer, and Johnson and Johnson vaccine ready and available. The health fair will start at 11 a.m. and run until 3 p.m.
As mentioned above, this will also be an opportunity to get a free medical examination. This means that there will be tests for glucose and cholesterol. The United Family hopes that all who wish to attend will.
“These fairs can be so important to guests from our communities,” said Tim Purser, director of pharmacy for The United Family. “We know that these medicals, along with the availability of the COVID-19 vaccine, can fill a health care gap for many of our guests. As always, we hope that many people will come out and enjoy these free services. “
Here are each of the four Amigos locations:
Amarillo, 3300 I-40 East, Amarillo, TX 79103
Lubbock, 112 N. University, Lubbock, TX 79415
Hereford, 520 N. 25-Mile Ave., Hereford, TX 79045
Full view, 2403 N. Columbia Ave., Plainview, TX 79072
Remember that these services are free for The United Family and Amigos. Local authorities and health workers continue to urge citizens to get vaccinated against COVID-19.
