Walmart is offering free wellness services and free flu shots this weekend across the country.

According to a press release, Walmart locations across the country will offer free health screenings, free flu shots, low-cost immunizations, free vision screenings (in locations with a vision center) and an opportunity to talk with a local pharmacist and other health and wellness professionals.

The event will be held Saturday, January 12 from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m.

Walmart Wellness Day is a free health event for Walmart customers.

While there are no out-of-pocket costs associated with most insurance plans for flu shots, customers are encouraged to check with their insurance companies to see if the company covers the cost of the flu shot. At Walmart, the cash price ranges depending on dose but starts at around $39.

Since 2014, Walmart has conducted approximately 3 million free screenings during the quarterly event.
