Walmart is also introducing a virtual reality experience in select stores to assist with smoking cessation. Approximately 22.5 percent of adults in Ohio smoke cigarettes regularly, according to the Centers for Disease Control. The free resource is intended to be a step toward quitting tobacco, Walmart officials said in a statement.
Since its first Walmart Wellness Day event, the company has provided more than 1.7 million free screenings and 225,000 immunizations to people across the country, helping countless customers uncover existing health problems.
The screenings are available from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at local stores on Saturday.
