FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: Aug. 10, 2004
Health Department announces new services and hours
The Health Department today announced the addition of new services and a change in some clinic hours.
The new services provided by the Health Department are offered by two new clinics. The International Travel Immunization Clinic provides required shots for people traveling out of the United States. Some international travel requires a series of shots that can take several months to complete. Therefore, it is imperative that as soon as international travel plans are arranged, people should make sure their shots are up to date. The other new service is offered by the new Adult Immunization Clinic. This clinic provides immunizations to those above high school age. Among the immunizations offered is the meningococcal vaccine for college students.
Both of these new clinics are fee-for-service clinics and are available by appointment only. The hours for both are Monday and Wednesday, 1-6 p.m.; and Thursday, 7:30 a.m. – 6 p.m.
The Childhood Immunizations Clinic’s new hours are Monday through Thursday, 7:30 a.m. – 5:30 p.m. On Fridays, the Childhood Immunizations Clinic takes the clinic on the road with its Outreach Clinic.
The Tuberculosis Clinic’s new hours are Monday through Friday, 7:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. After noon on Mondays, the clinic staff sees people by appointment only.
The Sexually Transmitted Disease Clinic’s new hours are Monday, 7:30 a.m. – noon; and Tuesday through Friday, 7:30 a.m. – 4 p.m.
