Screenings and Immunizations

USC Verdugo Hills Hospital is proud to offer free and low-cost screenings and immunizations throughout the year to the members of our community. Some regular offerings include:

Annual Fall Health and Well-Being Fair – This event is open to the public and is generally held the third Saturday in October from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. Available to the public at this event are:

  • Free flu shots
  • Free screenings including: glucose, cholesterol, vision, blood pressure, body mass index (BMI) and balance

Low-cost mammograms in October – This service is especially helpful to individuals whose insurance companies no longer fund annual mammograms. During the month of October, $99 mammograms are offered to the community – no physician’s order is required.

Tuberculosis (TB) screening for local school volunteers – Each August, USC Verdugo Hills Hospital works with La Cañada Unified School District and Glendale Unified School District to offer free TB test and readings for volunteers from our local community schools – free of charge.
