    PHOTOS: It was Rain or Shine for Capitol Drugs’ Sample Saturday and Health Fair in WeHo

    Capital Drugs’ Sample Saturday and Health Fair returned to the City of West Hollywood this past weekend, rain or shine, after a four-year hiatus. The WeHo pharmacy partnered with the West Hollywood Chamber of Commerce, the City of West Hollywood, Cedars Sinai, and several vendors for the return of a West Hollywood tradition on Saturday, March 23, 2024.

    Rain persisted during the first two hours of the event, affecting not only community members’ turnout but also deterring several vendors who were scheduled to participate that day. However, the clouds cleared around 1 pm, the sun emerged, and those undeterred by the rain, enjoyed a Saturday afternoon of community on Santa Monica Boulevard.

This year’s Sample Saturday and Health Fair included Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, Being Alive, Wesley Health Center, APLA, MBI Health Services, The Lab gym, Nike Training, My 12 Step Store, the West Hollywood Recovery Center, and more.

    Cedars Sinai offered health screenings measuring cholesterol, blood sugar, and blood pressure.

Free items included sports drinks, protein powders, condoms, and a plethora of information on health and fitness. Wesley Health Center offered free HIV testing. Capitol Drugs also provided free vitamin B12 booster shots to willing participants, drawing lines for a shot on the arm. Additionally, there were raffles offering various gift baskets from local vendors.
