Staff report

Aspen Valley Hospital’s Spring Health Fair takes place in Aspen on Saturday, June 6, and Sunday, June 7. Participants are encouraged to schedule an appointment online for their blood draw. Walk-ins are still welcome, but those with an appointment will be given first priority.

On Saturday, a blood draw will take place at the Aspen hospital. On Sunday, the blood draw, plus a variety of other screenings, will be offered at the hospital.

Times are from 8:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m.

Other low-cost offerings, on Sunday only, include tetanus/diphtheria/pertussis boosters for $20 through Community Health Services. Those with an insurance card can get the booster for free.

Free screenings, also offered only on Sunday, include air flow and oximetry, blood pressure, eye pressure, vision, hearing, body-fat percentage, knee exams (wear shorts), skin checks and oral screening.

In addition to the screenings, AVH’s trauma program staff, a dietitian, and the Komen Foundation will also be present. Free chair massages are an added benefit to Sunday’s event.
