Have a pharmacist or health care provider check your pressure.
Many pharmacies offer free blood pressure checks. Please check with your local pharmacy for availability.
Use a blood pressure kiosk.
Blood pressure kiosks can be found at pharmacies, grocery stores and other places of business. They are an easy, convenient way to check your blood pressure. However, it is important that the cuff be the proper size for your arm in order to get an accurate reading.
