Information on services we provide

Family Planning Services

You have the opportunity to choose when to become pregnant and plan your family.  Family planning makes pregnancies safer and more predictable.  We can help you plan your pregnancy.

Our family planning program provides access to acceptable and effective methods of birth control, including abstinence and natural family planning methods.  Family planning services are available for both males and females.  Family planning services include: contraceptive choices based on your health status; instructions on effective use of contraceptive choice; medical history, and yearly physical exam; height, weight, blood pressure; cervical cancer screening (pap smear); clinical breast exam and self-exam instruction; testicular exam and self-exam instruction; anemia testing. Immunization updates; sexually transmitted infection testing, HIV screening and counseling; pregnancy testing; and referrals for financial, medical and social assistance.

This service is provided free or at a reduced cost, determined by your income and the federal poverty guidelines.  You need an appointment to be seen.  We recommend that you bring your immunization record and the gross annual income of the household to expedite your first visit.  Give us a call at 785-826-6602 to make an appointment.

Pregnancy Testing Available

Do you think you are pregnant and want to find out for sure?  Or are you pregnant and need verification of pregnancy to apply for a medical card?  We provide testing for a fee at our clinic.  Give us a call at 785-826-6602 to make an appointment.

Low income clients are referred to the WIC program; which can help you get nutritious food for you and your baby, and give your baby a head start on good health.

Any pregnant women in Saline County who would like more information on her pregnancy may participate in the Mother & Infant program.

It is recommended that all women who are pregnant get 400 micrograms (0.4 milligrams) of folic acid every day.  Folic acid helps prevent certain serious types of birth defects.  It is best to start prenatal vitamins at least one month prior to becoming pregnant.

Sexually Transmitted Infection Testing Available

Are you sexually active, and worried that you may have a sexually transmitted disease?

Sexually transmitted infections such as Chlamydia and Gonorrhea are major causes of infertility in women.  These and other common sexually transmitted diseases can increase the risk of HIV for both women and men by 3-5 times.  In Kansas, there were 8,210 Chlamydia cases; 2,289 Gonorrhea cases; and 53 Syphilis cases reported in 2007.

The Saline County Health Department can provide testing to determine if you have been infected with a sexually transmitted infection such as Chlamydia, Gonorrhea, Syphilis, Hepatitis B, HIV, Herpes, and HPV (may cause cervical cancer or genital warts).  This service is provided at a fee, and medication will be provided free to treat the bacterial infections if you test positive.

For more information on sexually transmitted diseases go to:

HIV Counseling and Testing Services

If you have had unprotected sex, shared needles for drugs, or have other risk factors, you may want to be tested for HIV/AIDS.  We will assess your risk for infection, and discuss ways for you to protect yourself from infection with HIV.  You will need to come back to the health department to receive your confidential test results in 1-2 weeks.  Testing is available for a fee.  All testing is strictly confidential, as are all services at the clinic.  Give us a call at 785-826-6602 to make an appointment.

Foreign Travel Immunizations

If you are planning a trip outside the United States, are you aware of health risks you may face at your specific destination?  Do you know if certain vaccinations will be required?  Are you aware of how to protect yourself from food and waterborne disease? 

This and many other questions can be answered at the Saline County Health Department through our Foreign Travel Consultation Service.  This is done by appointment only.  Give us a call at 785-826-6602 to make an appointment with the Foreign Travel Nurse with a minimum of 6 to 8 weeks before your trip. Please be prepared with the following information:

  • Countries/Cities you plan to visit
  • Dates of travel
  • Your current immunization record
  • Your insurance card

Recommendations for vaccines are made in accordance with the Center for Disease Control guidelines.  Traveler health and safety concerns are discussed, and malaria prophylaxis (prevention) is recommended according to risk based on itinerary of travel with the country.  These appointments typically last one-half to one hour per person.  This allows time to discuss all concerns, complete official documentation, and administer indicated immunizations.

Vaccines offered for Foreign Travel include Hepatitis A, Hepatitis B, Meningococcal Vaccines, MMR, Pneumococcal Vaccine, Polio, Rabies, TB Skin Test, Tdap, Td, Typhoid oral and injectable, Varicella, and Yellow Fever.
