During this unique event when patients can come in for their annual flu vaccine provided by Walgreens, individuals ages 50-75 will also be offered a Fecal Immunochemical Test (FIT) kit to screen for colorectal cancer. FIT kits are used to screen for colon cancer from the comfort of home. Appointments are not required. For questions, call 252-449-4529.
Flu Vaccines & FIT Pick-up: Friday, October 7 | 9:00am to 11:00am
Flu Vaccines & FIT Drop-off: Monday, October 10 | 1:30pm to 3:30pm
Eligibility: FIT Kits are intended to screen adults 50 years of age and older who are at average risk for colorectal cancer by detecting certain DNA markers and blood in the stool. Do not use if you have had adenomas, inflammatory bowel disease and certain hereditary syndromes, or a personal or family history of colorectal cancer. FIT Kits are not a replacement for a colonoscopy in high-risk patients.
If you have questions about FIT test criteria or this event, please call 252-449-4529.
