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.

Safety... Why it matters
In the United States, unintentional injury leads to more deaths and disabilities for children 1-19 years of age than any other cause. 40% of all deaths in this age group are due to injury. That's one child every hour! Help us give all children the chance to grow up and become whatever they can imagine.
Medical Reserve Corps (MRC)
The Medical Reserve Corps (MRC) is a nationwide network of community-based groups of volunteers who are interested in strengthening public health. MRC units supplement a community’s existing emergency medical response capabilities and public health infrastructure. As of May 2015, there are 996 MRC units in the United States and its territories with over 206,000 volunteers. MRC units are locally based teams of medial and non-medical volunteers who can assist their community during large scale emergencies, such as an infectious disease pandemic, a chemical spill or an act of terrorism. Volunteers can also work together to improve the overall health and well-being of their neighborhoods and communities through education and prevention. The Pike County MRC was established in December 2006. Our local MRC unit has been participating with several agencies and organizations over the years in both preparedness and community efforts.
