Fort Hood’s annual Retiree Health Fair sponsored by Carl R. Darnall Army Medical Center will be from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday at Thomas Moore Health Clinic, on the corner of 58th Street and 761st Tank Battalion Ave. Representatives from various Darnall departments will dispense information, conduct screenings and answer questions for retired military personnel and their spouses.

Flu vaccines will be available. Retirees also are encouraged to get the Tetanus and Zostavax shots, which will be available at the health fair. For the Zostavax immunization, retirees must bring a note signed by their primary care provider stating there are no contraindications for the individual to receive the vaccine.

Dental Activity will provide oral cancer screening and have an information table.
