Public Health Nursing

Funded by the Health Services Levy of Meigs County, the Meigs County Health Department offers Public Health Nursing (PHN) services to residents of Meigs County. Public Health Registered Nurses administer immunizations to residents of all ages according to CDC Guidelines. Shot Clinics are held every Tuesday from 9 AM – 11 AM and 1 PM – 3 PM, and other immunizations may be received by scheduling an appointment. Annual flu shot clinics are held in addition to regular immunization clinics.

Registered Nurses operate the Children with Medical Handicaps (CMH) Program, a supplemental, income-based insurance program for those aged birth to 21 years with qualifying medical conditions.

Public Health Nursing also offers Hepatitus C and HIV testing to the public.

PHN Services are offered regardless of the persons’ ability to pay. For more information, please call or Leanne Cunningham, BSN, RN, DON, or Sherry Hayman, RN at 740-992-6626 weekdays between 8 AM and 4 PM.

Vision Services

The MCHD has grant funds from the Ohio Department of Health to assist children up to the age of 21 years with vision problems. To qualify, a child must NOT have any medical coverage, including Medicaid. Grant funds will pay for the exam at the office of Dr. Melanie Weese, O.D. and will pay 20% (up to $50.00) for the cost of frames. The MCHD also has other resources available to assist with vision problems. For more information, contact Leanne Cunningham, BSN, RN, Director of Nursing at 740-992-6626.
