Free health screenings this weekend

In support of World Health Day, on Saturday April 7, MediRite pharmacies will be offering free wellness screenings.

The check-ups will include blood sugar, cholesterol, blood pressure and body mass index (BMI) tests.

Customers are urged to make an appointment at their local pharmacies for the screenings to avoid overcrowding and disappointments.

To book an appointment you need the green identity books or smart ID cards

“Many people take access to basic health screenings for granted. These health screenings provide customers with a basic, yet vital understanding of their general health conditions and play a critical role in identifying health problems at an early stage and bettering the chance for effective treatment. That is why it is important to undergo regular health screenings,” said Andre van Aswegen, general manager at MediRite.
