Health Services

In order to protect and enhance the health status of our community members of all ages, the Commission offers several programs to help prevent the spread of disease in children and adults. Many of these are offered at low or no cost, in cooperation with other community partners, such as Zufall Health Center, Community VNA and others. Specific services are available to uninsured or underinsured infants and children through our child health clinics, including childhood immunizations. 

Child Health Services
The Commission offers comprehensive, preventive health services for infants and preschool children provided in child health clinics. Services include childhood immunizations, well-baby checkups, vision and hearing checks, lead screening, growth and development assessment, nutrition counseling and physicals. 

The Commission strongly supports vaccinations, including the regulations developed by the NJ Department of Health. The CDC recommends the following immunizations for children 0-6 years of age (en espanol) and 7-18 years of age (en espanol). You can learn more about why we vaccinate and why vaccines remain a critical tool in preventing disease in children and adults.  For schedule and location information about child or adult health services, contact the Community VNA at (908) 725-9355.

Adult Health Services
The Commission also provides health-related programs to enhance the well-being of the community’s adult population. Services include testing for sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) for men and women, blood pressure screenings, annual flu and pneumonia vaccines, health screenings for early detection of chronic disease, women’s health services and tuberculosis management.

Immunizations are also needed to help protect the health of all adults.  Here is the 2021 schedule of recommended adult immunizations. The Commission has also recently developed this brochure on adult immunizations.
