Week of Action: February 12-20, 2022
In 2021, high blood pressure was the most common underlying condition identified in San Diego County’s COVID-related deaths.
The best way to know if you have high blood pressure is to have it checked, as there are often no warning signs or symptoms to tell you something is wrong.
1. Check Your Blood Pressure
Check your blood pressure by making an appointment with your primary care physician or by checking it with a home blood pressure cuff. Our site map will be available soon to help you find a blood pressure screening site near you.
2. Submit Your Results
Submit your blood pressure results starting February 1st and receive a FREE face mask! Our online form will be available starting February 1, 2022.
3. Learn What They Mean
