Appointments are now required. After reviewing the current schedule and available services, click the button below to schedule an appointment. Note that appointments are limited. If there are no available times listed for the date and location you’re interested in that means we are full and you should check another location. For the months of July, August and September, Healthcare Connections will be offering primarily COVID-19 vaccinations. The locations that will be normal stops will still require you to make an appointment.
Masks or cloth face coverings are required. Please wear a mask or cloth face covering to your appointment. If you don’t have one, we will provide one for your visit.

Since its beginning, HealthCare Connections has served over 6,000 clients and performed over 24,000 screenings. We reach people who might not otherwise receive such services. Sometimes, it's a person who has not prioritized getting screened or immunized, but when it's made available, they take advantage of the opportunity. Other times it might be someone who doesn't have transportation or lives in a remote location where it's not easy to access a healthcare facility.

FAQs

Services

HealthCare Connections offers preventive health services, all free of charge. In order to offer our services for free, we have to follow guidelines established by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the United States Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF). The USPSTF reviews all the available evidence and grades preventive services based on their applicability for community screenings. HealthCare Connections is able to offer services that receive a grade of either A or B from USPSTF, and that are feasible given the physical and structural constraints of the vehicle. You can see a complete list of the USPSTF A and B Recommendations here

We are constantly monitoring the USPSTF recommendations to ensure our services are up to date. Currently, HealthCare Connections is excited to offer the following:
