Mobile health services offered at 12 county sites in December

 

Sarasota, Florida -- Through the month of December, Sarasota County Health Department's Health In Motion Mobile Medical Unit staff will provide free and low-cost health services at 12 sites around the county.

The services offered at the established sites include diabetes education and screening, blood pressure tests, pregnancy testing, HIV testing, body mass index (BMI) measurement, adult immunizations,and health education. The staff also assists individuals who lack medical insurance and do not have a health care provider to find a medical home for ongoing health care.

No appointment is needed. Some services are free, including HIV rapid testing with results in 20 minutes. Other services are provided on a sliding-fee scale based on income. A registered nurse is available at all sites.

While these services are most often provided in a 40-foot-long bus, there are times when services are provided inside the facilities visited.

*Some services including adult immunizations are not offered at all locations.
