The Henry and Stark County Health Departments remind area residents of their Well-Child Clinic program. Clinics are held in Kewanee at the Health Department offices, Rt. 78 South, Kewanee.

Through their Well-Child clinic the Department hopes that by offering comprehensive health services to area children today; health problems will be prevented in the future.

Clinic services include: periodic "head to toe" well-child exams for children from birth to age 20; hemoglobin tests, blood lead screenings, immunizations, developmental screenings, and counseling and referral. The services of the well-child clinics are available to all area residents. The clinic will accept medicaid payments and private pay. A sliding fee scale, based on the client's income, has been established to assist low-income families to obtain services.
