14th Annual Senior Resource Fair & Vaccination Clinic


This is a fantastic opportunity for seniors, caregivers, and adults with parents living at home to get information on many of the health and wellness resources that are available. Vendors will give free samples and all participants will be entered to win door prizes. Several free screenings will be available. The City of Lake Forest and Walgreens are partnering to offer free fl u vaccinations to Medicare recipients and a minimal fee for non-recipients. Please bring your Medicare/Medical card. HMO and Kaiser members are not eligible for “free” vaccinations due to the requirement that recipients obtain vaccinations through their healthcare providers’ offices.

Location: Lake Forest Community Center (25550 Commercentre Dr)
