MCHD Clinical Services has served generations of Monongalia County residents with their medical needs ranging from adult and childhood vaccines to breast and cervical cancer screenings. Our mission is to provide the community with free or low cost services to those in need.
Vaccines are for adults too!
Just because you are an adult doesn’t mean you are done getting your shots. Besides your yearly flu shot, it is recommended that all adults get a Tdap vaccine every 10 years. This will not only protect you from diseases such as tetanus and diphtheria, but also young loved ones from pertussis (whooping cough). With age and lifestyle some other vaccines may be needed. This includes the shingles vaccines for those 50 and older, pneumonia for those 65 and older, as well as HPV through age 26. To learn more about what vaccines you may need, visit the CDC.
WORRIED ABOUT HEPATITIS?
Monongalia County Health Department holds a Hepatitis C Clinic on Fridays. We provide free initial screening tests. If your test is positive, our nurse practitioner can treat your hepatitis, provide doctor referrals & help you navigate the insurance process.
It is recommended that all people born between 1945-1965 get tested for Hepatitis C. There are other risk factors that also can be considered when deciding whether or not to get tested.
Susan R. McKenrick, MSN, APRN, FNP-BC, will be leading the Hepatitis Clinic. Patients may call 304-598-5119 to schedule an appointment or may be referred by a healthcare provider.
Learn how to treat and manage your diabetes.
