CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Free flu shots, blood pressure screenings, body fat analysis and seminars on senior wellness and health plan options are being offered free of charge to Medicare beneficiaries in the Corpus Christi area.

Sponsored by Humana, H.E.B. Pharmacy and the SilverSneakers Fitness Program, the Humana 2008 Showcase will be held from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Wednesday, November 14 in the Watergarden Room of the American Bank Center, 1901 North Shoreline Boulevard.

H.E.B. Pharmacy will provide flu shots at the event free to all Medicare beneficiaries (all others are subject to insurance billing procedures). The Centers for Disease Control says that yearly immunization with the flu vaccine is the best way to prevent influenza which can cause serious complications, including bacterial pneumonia, dehydration, and worsening of chronic medical conditions, such as congestive heart failure, asthma or diabetes. An annual flu shot is recommended for people older than 65 or who suffer from chronic health problems.

The Humana 2008 Showcase will also feature information on 2008 Humana Medicare health plan options as well as guest speakers on topics such as fire safety, senior health and wellness, neighborhood watch programs and auto theft prevention.

Blood pressure and body fat analysis will be provided through Virgin life care while SilverSneakers will provide an exercise and yoga demonstration.

Participants are being asked to bring a can of food to benefit the Food Bank of Corpus Christis From the Heart of the Holidays Food Drive.

There will be live entertainment throughout the day and a drawing for an H.E.B. Gift Card will be held, without obligation, every half hour beginning at 9:30 a.m.
