VillAGE OF LOMBARD TO HOST A Services for SENIORs Event, OCTOBER 6, 2021.

2021 Services for Seniors Event

This year, the Village of Lombard will host a Services for Seniors event focused on offering seniors access to on-site services. The event will take place on Wednesday, October 6, 2021, from 9:00 am to 1:00 pm at the Madison Meadow Athletic Center, 500 E. Wilson Avenue.

Local agencies will be present to provide basic health services for seniors on-site and light refreshments will be available. Services available at the event will include:  

  • Blood pressure screenings
  • Flu shots 
  • Chair massages and posture screenings
  • Hearing screenings
  • COVID-19 vaccines 
  • Balance screenings
  • DMV services

Unlike past Senior Fair events, this year's Services for Seniors Event will be reduced in scale and limited solely to a selection of available on-site services. Commercial and civic organization vendors will not be present in person on-site, although their literature, contact information, and giveaways will be aggregated and made available to attendees collectively. 

Seniors who are unable to attend the event can stop by Village Hall after October 6th, to pick up a bag filled with vendor information, while supplies last.

COVID-19 Vaccines

A limited number of COVID-19 boosters will be available through the DuPage County Health Department’s (DCHD) Care Van at the Services for Seniors Event, while supplies last. At this time, booster recommendations only apply to certain populations who completed their two-shot series of Pfizer at least 6 months ago. DCHD encourages individuals to save time if they are planning to get vaccinated through DCHD by pre-registering at www.dupagehealth.org/covid19vaccineregistration (if not previously registered). Pre-registration does not guarantee vaccination at this event - as supplies are limited.  

To find vaccine providers near you, visit www.vaccines.gov or contact your local pharmacy or primary care physician. For more information about COVID-19 vaccines in DuPage County, visit www.dupagehealth.org/covid19vaccine
