Welcome and thank you for choosing the Pike County Health Department. Your source for good health! We are open Monday through Friday from 7:30 AM to 4:30 PM.
Same day scheduling
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.
National Immunization Awareness Month
Each year in August, National Immunization Awareness Month (NIAM) provides an opportunity to highlight the value of immunization across the lifespan. Activities focus on encouraging all people to protect their health by being vaccinated against infectious diseases. In 2015, the National Public Health Information Coalition (NPHIC) is coordinating NIAM activities.
