TUCSON, AZ — After redirecting their resources to help during the coronavirus pandemic, three Pima County Health Department clinics are reopening. Patients are being encouraged to call ahead for an appointment.
The Pima County clinics are some of the only options Tucsonans have for basic healthcare, the health department said in a news release. Masks will be required for anyone visiting any of the locations.
“Our work during the height of the pandemic response was extremely important, but it’s great to get back to our clinics, to treat our clients and provide for our children and adults one-on-one, directly serving the people of our community," said Debra Osborne, the Health Department’s Nurse Manager for Clinical Services.
The North Clinic on 3550 N. 1st Avenue in Tucson reopened Monday for HIV and STI testing. It will also begin providing immunizations on Tuesday. The clinic will be open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.
The East Clinic on 6920 E. Broadway will open for immunizations on Sept. 14 from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m., and 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. on Mondays.
Unlike the other two, the Theresa Lee Clinic, located at 1493 W. Commerce Court, remained open throughout the pandemic for family planning, HIV and STI testing services. It will add immunizations to its plate from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. and 1 p.m. to 5 p. m. on Mondays and Fridays, and Wednesdays from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m..
