New “Same Day” Scheduling
Beginning on November 1st, the Boyle County Health Department will be offering “Same Day” appointments on clinic days. Starting on that day, just call between 8:00 a.m. 9:00 a.m. in the morning, and you will get an appointment that day. If the schedule is fully booked, you will be asked to call back tomorrow. That is why it is important to call or come in early.
You spoke, we listened. No more waiting for weeks or more for WIC appointments, women’s health, immunizations, or well-child exams. When you are finished with your appointment, you will be given a reminder card for when you need to come back. You call the health department on the day that is convenient for YOU. The health department clinic is normally open from 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on Monday, Wednesday and Thursday, 8:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. on Tuesday and 8:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. on Friday.
