Even though there was no worries about a swine flu epidemic, or a shortage of vaccines, there were still plenty of people who came to the Highland Senior Centerís Annual Health Fair

to get their shots. And while the lines didnít stretch out for a hundred or so yards as in the past, like when we had the first shots available in the area, the line was still long. Maybe its because the shots only cost $10 here vs. $25 elsewhere, or maybe itís because of all the other services and information we had on hand to help pass the time while over 300 people waited for their shots.

The weather was certainly on our side, as previous days had extreme heat, wind, and thunderstorms. On the day of the fair it was a sunny day, but not too hot with a nice breeze every once in a while to make it comfortable. Meanwhile, we tried to have most of the services inside so that while you did wait in line, most of it was spent inside with the air conditioning. That way, when fair goers got their blood pressure checked, it was more reasonable. However, nothing we could do could help with the body mass index. Members were on their own for that one. Nothing we couldíve done to help them with that...sorry.

Thanks to the volunteers who came to set up and work the fair, all of our wonderful vendors who came out to make this a success. Additional thanks go our to the Highland Police Departmentís Citizenís Patrol for their excellent traffic control. Mostly we would like to thank our event sponsors, the Physicians of Beaver Medical Group and the San Manuel Band of Mission Indians.
