DOH-Charlotte has partnered with Humana health services and the Homeless Coalition to promote and provide the Flu vaccine for those most in need including the indigent, homeless, unemployed, under employed, elderly and many others in our community. Hep A vaccines are also being offered along with 100 “goodie bags” provided by Humana. Bags contain basic hygiene items, disposable masks, hand sanitizer, blankets, socks and educational material from our Health Promotions team. Because of this important work, many homeless and uninsured were able to get influenza and hepatitis-A vaccinations. By meeting people in their location of need, the stress of trying to find transportation is eliminated and the vaccines are readily available to many more members of the community. Feel good about the good!!!
DOH-Columbia County, in partnership with the WellFlorida Council, is providing free HIV testing at the drive through COVID-19 testing site. Visitors can receive a COVID-19 swab and then opt into an oral swab for HIV. DOH employees provide HIV informational cards to each person being tested for COVID-19 during registration. This gives clients the opportunity to confidentially test for HIV from the comfort of their car. Additionally, this service provides access to testing for individuals that would not normally think of being tested.
DOH-Hillsborough recently released two public education pieces, a profile and video, telling the story of health equity in Hillsborough. While equity issues have been much on the forefront of awareness in 2020, health equity is not well understood by many outside the arena of public health. These first-ever health equity publications for Hillsborough are data and graphic rich explanations of how some groups come to be worse off than other groups in terms of health. Both pieces incorporated numerous sources of data. Chief among those data was FLHealthCHARTS.com, which is an invaluable resource to Florida constituents. The profile and video are currently being used by leaders throughout Hillsborough County in evaluating their equity work and plans.
