Rapid HIV Testing Now Available
According to the CDC, about 1 in 8 Americans with HIV do not realize they are infected and account for nearly one-third of HIV transmissions
in the United States. Do you know your status? We now offer rapid HIV testing with results in approximately 20 minutes. Testing is done using a simple
finger stick method and includes a low cost health assessment. Available at the Main Office and Teen Health Center.
Back to School Vaccination Reminder
Parents and caregivers can beat the back to school rush by getting their children vaccinated this summer. Children must receive their vaccines before the first day
of the school year. Vaccinations are available at the Health Department’s main office (810) 987-5300 and Teen Health Center (810) 987-1311.
Unvaccinated children are at an increased risk and can spread diseases to others in classrooms and the community – including babies too young to be fully
vaccinated and those with weakened immune systems.
The State of Michigan also requires local health departments to provide one-on-one education to parents and guardians who are requesting a non-medical waiver.
