Staff from the Rolling Plains Memorial Hospital Diabetic Outreach Program will be at the health department on Thursday, June 22 from 8-noon to perform free blood sugar checks. Come and take advantage of this free service offered to our community.
The Sweetwater-Nolan County Health Department (SNCHD) provides immunizations every Wednesday from 8:30-11:30 & 1-4:30. The second Wed. of each month until 6 p.m. We encourage you to keep your child up-to-date on their vaccines. If you have any questions regarding immunizations please call 235-5463. Children with private health insurance need to be vaccinated by their physician unless private insurance does not pay for vaccines then the child can be vaccinated at the health department; through our Vaccines for Children program there is a $10 administration fee per a child, and we accept Medicaid, and CHIPS. We can also vaccinate un-insured adult with Td or Tdap; Hep B; MCV; MMR; Hep A; HPV (up to age 26 for females and 21 for males); Varicella; Zoster (age 50 and older) and Pneumococcal Polysaccharide.
