In honor of Veterans Day, Shore Urgent Care will offer free health screenings to veterans at its Shore Urgent Care sites in Northfield, Mays Landing, and Atlantic City on November 10, 11, and 12. The free health screenings include cholesterol and blood glucose tests, blood pressure, and body mass index, and height and weight. If an individual is screened with a high risk factor, they will receive recommendations for further care and their primary care physician will be notified.
The free health screenings are a way to thank veterans for their services while helping them pay closer attention to their health and learn more about the health care options available to them right in their own communities. With their evening and weekend hours, Shore Urgent Care provides a convenient and affordable treatment alternative when veterans are faced with urgent but non life-threatening illnesses or injuries and can not be seen at their local VA clinic.
Veterans can visit any of the three Shore Urgent Care locations on November 10, 11 or 12 from Noon-5pm to receive a free screening, no appointment necessary. Shore Urgent Cares, located in Mays Landing (5401 Harding Highway), Northfield (2605 Shore Road) and Atlantic City (2015 Pacific Avenue, in Caesars Parking Garage) are open 10am-8pm Monday through Friday, and from 9am to 5pm on Saturday and Sunday.
