Walmart to offer free health screenings Saturday

Mega-pack of paper towels - check.

Cheap gas - check.

Body fat reading - check?

Walmart and Sam's Club stores will be offering free health screenings at all 72 New Jersey locations Saturday.

The screenings are available to the public. People need not be Sam's Club members to participate, a company spokeswoman said.

Sam's Club locations will provide body fat readings, while for the first time in Walmart stores, customers can test for both body fat and body mass index.

The Body Mass Index is a simple computation based on height and weight. The body fat reading uses actual body measurements to estimate the percentage of fat.

Pharmacists will be on hand at many locations to provide immunizations - although these will be available under the normal fee structure.

Customers can also get immediate readings of their blood glucose and blood pressure. Vision screenings will also be available.

The Sam's Club's screenings are scheduled to be available from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., while Walmart screenings will be conducted from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. 

Last year the two stores collectively provided nearly a half million free health screenings nationwide, according to the company. At Walmart alone, nearly 250,000 were conducted in October. Sam's Club began offering free health screenings in 2010 and has conducted more than one million screenings since the program began.
