The county health department provides a variety of basic health services to keep you healthy, and if you are sick, to get well. Listed below are some of the services we offer.

Child Health
Healthy children are a major priority of the health department. Well child checkups include physical exams, screening tests and immunizations. Screenings are available to assure normal development and to detect and treat any medical condition for persons from birth to 21 years of age. We strongly recommend regular checkups and we can make referrals for medical/dental services to be sure all children are as healthy as they can be.
If your child is a new patient, please print and complete the Health History questionnaire (English; Spanish) and bring to your appointment with a list of any medications your child is taking.
