Caledonian Health Fair Offers Free Flu Vaccine

October 16, 2004

On Saturday October 16th 2004, the Caledonian Family Health Center hosted its 2nd annual Health Fair as a Diagnostic and Treatment Facility. The Health Fair was held in both the front parking lot as well as in the ambulatory care suite where community residents were screened for blood sugar levels, blood pressure, and cholesterol levels. In addition, oral screenings were conducted as were hearing tests. Distribution of the flu vaccine accounted for some of the success of the Health
Fair as community members came out to receive free vaccinations. In addition to health screenings, Caledonian was supported by many of its new community based organizations and partners who set up tables and distributed literature and information on the services which they provide. Organizations such as CAMBA, the Haitian Women's Program, the IFETAYO Caribbean Aids Fund, 1600 WWRL radio, Health First and the New York Presbyterian Community Health Plan provided support and sponsorship. The music and moon bounce entertainment for children was sponsored by Health First and rounded out the event. The Caledonian Health Center would like to express its thanks and appreciation for all of the support that they received from its sponsors and The Brooklyn Hospital Center.
