OKLAHOMA CITY -- An Oklahoma City neighborhood association is joining with the UCO School of Nursing to hold the 6th Annual Riverpark Health Fair Saturday, November 5.

Free flu shots and health screenings will be available at the fair which is scheduled for 8:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Immaculate Conception Catholic Church, 3901 SW 29th Street.

There is a limited number of flu shots, so they will be given on a first come, first serve basis, according to Riverpark Neighborhood Association president Tommy Hay.

Screenings will be offered for blood sugar levels, blood pressure and heart disease. The UCO School of Nursing and Mercy Community Outreach will conduct the health screenings and give advice on healthy food choices and nutrition.

Spanish translators will be available.
