Every time we eat in a restaurant, register our pets, build a well or septic system, need help for health care, or vaccinate our children, the Health Department is involved to make us safer and healthier.

  • Immunizations
  • TB control
  • Chronic and Communicable disease control
  • Hearing and vision screening for children
  • STD/HIV testing and counseling
