Each winter, the San Francisco Fil-Am Lions Club, in cooperation with many other clubs of District 4-C4 (San Francisco Peninsula) including the primary organizer, the San Francisco Host Lions Club, holds numerous Health Fairs at church parishes, community centers, and other venues throughout the San Francisco and San Mateo counties.

the Health Fair in cooperation with the Philippine Consulate and the Philippine Medical Society of Northern California.
Please contact overall Chairperson Liz Yulo or either of the contact persons listed below if you would like to volunteer.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, our Health Fairs had to adapt to conserve use of personal protective equipment while still adhering to CDC guidelines and best practices. The solution were Drive Thru Health Fairs providing free flu shots outdoors at set locations. This drive-through flu shot clinic is a collaborative effort of the district health fair, Global Initiative of Health and Wellness, the Samaritan House of San Mateo, and nine California Lions clubs of District 4-C4, joining together to provide needed services for our communities.
Samaritan House San Mateo (Oct-Nov 2020)
Led by the District Health Fair committee in partnership with the Samaritan House in San Mateo and the Global Initiative for Health and Wellness.
South San Francisco City Hall (Nov 7 & 22, 2020)
Led by the San Francisco Host Lions in partnership with the City of South San Francisco and Kaiser Permanente.
St. Augustine's Church (Dec 6, 2020)
Led by the San Francisco Host Lions in partnership with the Knights of Columbus.
We don't have the schedules of prior years, but our club has been participating in these Health Fairs from as far back as 2009!
