Free Health Screening for Kids - Sams Club - August 9th

Sam’s ClubPromotes Back-to-School Safety with Free Health Screenings for Kids

In-club screenings available to members and non-members, Saturday, August 9 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Back-to-school brings shopping for clothes, buying school supplies and securing updated health information for children, but why not also use this time to take a few simple steps to help ensure their safety? Fingerprints and DNA samples have become the standard tools for personal identification and can be useful for parents should they ever be needed, which is why Sam’s Club is offering DNA testing and fingerprint kits as part of their annual free children’s health screenings on Saturday, August 9 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.

The screenings, which combine health and child safety information, are free and available to the public at all Sam’s Club locations with a pharmacy (596 locations). The free event includes a take-home DNA kit that provides instructions on storing a saliva sample to help find children in the event they are ever lost to which only a parent/guardian has access and a child safety ID kit with a fingerprint form and instructions on storing personal information.

The savings are valued at up to $150 and include:

  • A take-home DNA kit that provides instructions on storing a saliva sample to help find children in the event they are ever lost to which only a parent/guardian has access
  • A child safety ID kit with a fingerprint form and instructions on storing personal information
  • Blood pressure testing
  • BMI (body mass index) testing
  • Vision screenings (select locations)
