Some services on hold due to COVID-19

Some of our services are on hold for the month of July due to COVID-19, including sexually transmitted infection (STI) services, family planning services, and laboratory services. Additionally, immunization services are Tuesday and Thursday mornings, by appointment only. This allows us to better allocate our time, staffing, and space to COVID-19 testing and other efforts to address the pandemic.

Fortunately, these types of clinical services are available at other local clinics serving Wyandotte County residents. See lists of local safety net clinics linked below. Please note: these clinics may have alternate hours or procedures due to COVID-19:
