Mobile Health Screenings And Flu Shot Clinics

SPRINGFIELD – The Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH), and its partners – Fifth Street Renaissance and Walgreens, will be providing free health screenings and flu shots in homeless communities in central Illinois starting in November and running into February.

IDPH will be driving its Wellness on Wheels van to various locations in Decatur, Jacksonville, Quincy, and Springfield in an effort to take health services to people who may not otherwise seek care.  Walgreens will be providing free flu shots and blood pressure screenings.  Fifth Street Renaissance will provide free HIV, hepatitis C, and STD (sexually transmitted disease) testing.  Individuals should bring a photo ID and their insurance or Medicaid card, although some services can be provided without them.
