Pulaski Health Clinic Will be Open First and Third Fridays of Each Month
PULASKI - Oswego County Health Commissioner Kathleen Smith has announced changes to the health department's clinic schedule that will take effect in January.
The satellite clinic at the H. Douglas Barclay Courthouse, Pulaski, will be open the first and third Fridays of the month beginning Jan. 6. Immunizations will be offered from 9 to 11 a.m.
Residents can receive flu shots, pneumonia shots, and immunizations against childhood diseases. Appointments are not necessary. People who are covered by Medicaid or Medicare should bring their benefit card with them to the clinic. Others will be charged $30 for the flu vaccine. However, no one will be turned away due to his or her inability to pay.
The hypertension and diabetic screening clinics that were offered once a month at the Oswego clinic will no longer be held.
"The number of people using these clinic services has steadily declined, and the new schedule will make more efficient use of our staffing resources," said Smith. "We will continue to hold our immunization clinics every Friday afternoon at the Nick Sterio public health clinic in Oswego."
Clinic hours are 12:30 to 3:30 p.m. at 70 Bunner St., Oswego. For additional information, call the health department weekdays at 349-3547 or 1-800-596-3200, ext. 3547.
