School is nearly back in session, and Walmart is helping families get a healthy start to the new school year.

The retail store is calling it America's largest single day health fair event of the year.

It's called Walmart Wellness Day  and it's going on at several locations on Saturday, July 21 from 10 a.m. - 2 p.m.

Here's the best part: it's free.

The free event provides students and their families access to health services including immunizations, health screenings, and even free vision screenings and certain locations. 

Parents will also be able to speak one-on-one with a Walmart pharmacist about any health concerns they have for their children going into the school year.

This isn't Walmart's first rodeo, either.

Since the Walmart Wellness Day event first began, the company has provided more than 2.2 million free screenings to people across the country.

Customers will also have access to blood glucose and blood pressure screenings, which have helped many people discover existing health problems.
