Sam's Club will host free allergy and health screenings at its Kietzke Lane location this Saturday from 11am-3pm.

Both members and guests can attend the screenings, as Sam's Club pharmacies are open to the public.

The screenings include free in-club health tests including:

  • allergy screening/blood test for milk, eggs, pet dander (cats), mold, dust mites, wheat, ragweed, mountain cedar, Bermuda grass and Timothy grass
  • blood pressure
  • body mass index (BMI)
  • vision

Sam's Club representatives say they've provided more than 2.2 million free health screenings since 2010.

Sam's Club says it will provide free screenings every second Saturday of the month through this October.
