Welcome and thank you for choosing the Pike County Health Department. Your source for good health!
The Pike County Health Department utilizes "same day scheduling." This means you will call or walk-in the day you need an appointment and make arrangements for that day. No longer do you have to remember to call ahead and set up an appointment and then remember to keep that appointment. If you call before 9 AM you are almost guaranteed to be seen on that day. You may also walk-in without calling to make an appointment. Walk-ins must check in by 8 AM to guarantee availability.
Ebola Hemorrhagic Fever - What You Should Know
We realize many people in our community may have concerns about ebola, so here is some general information from the CDC.
Ebola is transmitted through direct contact with the blood or bodily fluids of an infected, symptomatic person or through exposure to objects (such as needles) that have been contaminated with infected secretions. In order for the virus to be transmitted, a person would have to have direct contact with an individual who is experiencing symptoms. Ebola is not a respiratory disease, like the flu, so it is not transmitted through the air. Ebola is not a food-borne or water-borne illness, so you cannot get it from contaminated food or water.
