Stress-Free Immunizations: We’ve got you covered

Even after receiving multiple shots and blood tests, Deena Hawasli was smiling after her appointment with Washtenaw County Public Health’s immunization program.

“The staff was just all very friendly and happy,” she said. “Usually, other similar environments are very stressful. Here they’re very, very sweet and paid attention to everything I asked and everything I needed.”

DeenaDeena called Washtenaw County Public Health because she needed an array of vaccinations and blood tests for a dental residency program she is applying to, and couldn’t get clear answers from a previous clinic. Our senior clerk Diana Brown was able to answer all of Deena’s questions over the phone and make her an appointment for the same day.

When Deena came in, she got some of her vaccinations out of the way and a thorough explanation of all the tests required for her program. Staff made sure everything she needed was covered by her insurance.

“I have Medicaid, so I was really happy that I found a resource that was close by that could help me with what I needed,” she said.

Deena continued, “I felt very comfortable here. I felt welcomed. I definitely recommend this place to people who need immunizations or other tests for school, work, or anything else.”
