A nationwide retailer is hoping to help residents start the new year on a healthy note.

Walmart will be hosting its Wellness Day event in stores across the country this weekend. Customers can receive some free health screenings, immunizations at a lower cost, and flu shots. 

The cost or no cost associated with the flu shots are dependent on the customers’ insurance. While there are no out-of-pocket costs associated with most insurance plans for flu shots, customers are encouraged to check with their insurance companies to see if the company covers the cost of the flu shot.  

The company has given out nearly three million free health screenings since starting the Wellness Day event in 2014

Customers can receive these services only from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. this upcoming Saturday at any Walmart in the country.
