The second annual Health and Wellness Expo for Older Adults (formerly the Senior Health Fair) will be held on Thursday, Oct. 6, from 9 a.m.-1 p.m., at the Eastern Greenwich Civic Center, 90 Harding Road, Old Greenwich. This event is organized by the Greenwich Commission on Aging, Greenwich Department of Health and Greenwich Hospital.

Participants 65 years of age or older must bring their Medicare Part B / Medicare Advantage ID Card or a fee of $35 will be charged for influenza immunizations.  (Seasonal and Fluzone High Dose)  The charge for pneumonia immunization (Pneumovax 23) is $65 and (Previnar 13) is $180.00.  Medicare Advantage Plans do not cover pneumonia immunizations received at public clinics.  Shingles vaccine will be available, but quantities are limited.  The charge for shingles vaccine (for persons 60 years and older) is $185.00 (cash/check only, credit cards will not be accepted – no insurance billing – receipts available).

As in previous years, the 2nd Health & Wellness Expo will provide opportunities for older adults to enhance and maintain their health, view resources from our sponsors and engage in invigorating programs.  All adults 55 and older are encouraged to attend the event which opens at 9 a.m. and join us for the keynote lecture at 11:15 a.m. and lunch at 12:15 p.m.
