“There’s nothing more important than the health of you and your family,” said Schneider. “I’m glad to work with Rosalind Franklin University Health Clinics and my colleague State Representative Yingling to bring flu shots and other health services to the Round Lake area free of charge. I hope you will join us on January 7th!”
“This winter is expected to be one of the worst flu seasons on record, and it is important that we work to provide a safe and healthy community for all,” Yingling said. “By teaming up with Congressman Brad Schneider to help provide preventative health services at no cost to local residents, we can better help keep our communities healthy this winter and beyond.”
Schneider and Yingling are partnering with Rosalind Franklin University Health Clinics to offer the free services including flu shots, blood pressure testing and diabetes screenings.
Attendees can also work with Yingling’s staff to see if they have any unclaimed funds or assets in their name through the state’s iCash program. Constituent Service Representatives from Congressman Schneider’s office will be on hand to help attendees with any issues involving the federal government – from Social Security and Medicare to the Veterans Administration and immig
The event is open to the public and all services are donated by Rosalind Franklin University Health Clinics. Assistance will be provided on a first come first serve basis or until supplies run out.
