Health Department Clinics/Programs
One of the main functions of the Health Department is to prevent the premature onset of disease and disability, and to help all residents achieve healthier, more productive lives. The Health Department is committed to maintaining, protecting, and promoting the health of its residents through organized health promotion and disease prevention efforts. These efforts are based on state-wide standards set forth by New Jersey’s Department of Health.
The Health Department continues to offer a variety of clinics and programs to our residents designed to promote and maintain good health. Some of the clinics/programs offered during the year include Male and Female Cancer Screenings; SMAC Blood Chemistry Screenings twice a year; FLU clinics, Child Health Conferences; Dental Clinics – held at the Wayne Health Department; Annual Health Fair; and Blood Pressure Screenings offered to St. Mary’s seniors on the 2nd Wednesday of the month and Golden Agers on the 3rd Thursday of the month. Please check the Borough website for a current offering of programs.
The Public Health Nurse is available on Wednesday mornings from 9:30 – 11:30 a.m. to administer inoculations including adult vaccinations such as shingles, flu and pneumonia. Blood pressure screenings are also available during those hours.
The Registered Environmental Health Specialist inspects all retail food establishments. In addition to food inspections the REHS inspects public swimming pools, youth camps, septic systems, and investigates public health nuisance complaints.
