Health Fair
Next Date TBD

One of the biggest events hosted by the H&W Committee is the annual Health Fair. With significant planning and effort, this event brings many healthcare vendors to Tucson Estates allowing our residents to easily meet professionals who offer a variety of products and services designed to educate attendees, improve health, and plan for future needs. Always a big hit are the many door prizes raffled off during the event.

Shot Clinic: Flu, Pneumonia, Shingles
Next Date TBD
Administered by Walmart

In preparation for the annual flu season (which typically starts in January), the H&W Committee teams up with Walmart to offer a Flu Shot Clinic. Residents need to simply come to the MPH for a flu vaccine, pneumonia or shingles immunizations. Please bring your insurance cards. Medicare covers the flu vaccine and pneumonia immunization at 100% and other insurance may be accepted. If you do not have insurance coverage, a competitive fee will be charged. Protecting yourself from the flu couldn't be any easier.
