Free medical, vision and dental care will be offered Sunday in Indio for the uninsured and underinsured.
“The clinic will have 70 dental chairs, 20 medical exam rooms, and 10 vision lanes,” California CareForce organizers announced. “A vision lab will produce free prescription eyeglasses on-site. Dentistry will include X-rays, cleanings, fillings, and extractions in addition to partial dentures. Medical doctors will provide services ranging from consultation and diagnosis to minor medical procedures while nurses will staff triage areas and provide medical assistance.”
Individuals and families interested in the free services need no proof of insurance, employment, income, residency, immigration status or identification, organizers said. The free clinic will be stationed at the Riverside County Fairgrounds in Indio starting at 6:30 a.m.
A limited number of wristbands guaranteeing next-day service were distributed at 4 p.m. Saturday, according to the CareForce website. Wristbands may not be transferred to another individual and only one wristband was given per person for each clinic day.
The stand-by line is still available for those interested in receiving free services, according to the CareForce website. The stand-by line, however, does not guarantee service.
