RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) -

An estimated 60 million Americans suffer from allergies, with more than two million school days and four million work days lost each year as a result. However, allergies can be easily managed if they are caught before they flare up.

Saturday, March 9th from 11 a.m. through 3 p.m. Sam's Club locations will host free allergy and health screenings at all  locations with a pharmacy. Both members and guests can attend the free screenings, because Sam's Club pharmacies are open to the public.

The screenings include free in-club health tests including: allergy screening and blood tests for milk, eggs, pet dander, mold, dust mites, wheat, ragweed, mountain cedar, Bermuda grass, and Timothy grass. You can also get you blood pressure, body mass index, and vision tested.

These health screenings can help people to identify any allergies and provide them with information about how to prevent and treat them.
