“It is also important to note that seniors will be able to receive free flu shots.”

The lawmaker said that the Pennsylvania Mobile Veterans Van will also be on site with valuable information as well as the Western Pennsylvania School for the Deaf who will be offering free hearing screenings in their Mobile Diagnostic Unit.
