Tri-County Health Center – Employee Vaccination
Health Center staff are encouraged to receive vaccination against COVID-19. As of 08/31/21, 91% of our staff are fully vaccinated, or 94 of 103 staff members. An additional 5 staff members are partially vaccinated (5%).
Each Health Center patient will be called and screened prior to in-person visit. Telehealth visits are available for those who prefer, unless the medical provider feels as though telehealth is not appropriate to adequately treat the patient. We ask that you avoid taking anyone with you to your appointment whenever possible. All prenatal appointments, and immunization appointments for children up to age 11 will be scheduled for an in-person visit. For the safety of our patients, Tri-County Health Centers have updated our sanitation, distancing, and safety procedures to minimize the spread of COVID-19.
If you are experiencing fever, cough, shortness of breath, or flu like symptoms, please stay home. Our providers and nurses can provide medical advice over the phone. Contact us at 401-519-1940.
Dental & Oral Health providers are available for in-person appointments. If you are experiencing a dental concern, please contact us at 401-519-1940 to speak with a dental provider.
