Working for healthy families

Our Healthy Families programs offer free and confidential services–some right in your own home! From parenting advice to healthy WIC foods, support for breastfeeding and your child’s growth and development, we have many services to offer you and your family.

Working to keep you and your pets healthy

Onondaga County Health Department provides many free or low-cost clinics and health screenings for you, your family, and even your pets.

We offer cancer screening, family planning, pregnancy testing, lead testing, immunizations, STD and TB testing and treatment, rabies shot clinics for your pets, and many other services to keep you and your family healthy and disease free.

Working for healthy places

The Health Department works with schools, worksites, farmers, community organizations, small grocery stores, and others to make it easy to choose healthy foods.

We are also working to make it easy to be more active through safe routes to school, walkable and bikeable roads, and through safer roadways for you and your community.

Working for a healthy environment

We work to ensure a safe and healthy environment for people to live, work, and play. Just some of the ways we do this include inspecting homes for lead, investigating animal bites, protecting our air and drinking water, inspecting restaurants, and ensuring the safety of public pools and beaches. Our goal is to keep your surroundings safe and healthy.

Working for our community

The Health Department serves our community in many ways such as collecting and analyzing health data, tracking disease, investigating deaths, processing forensic evidence, issuing birth and death certificates, providing volunteer opportunities, and helping our community be prepared for public health emergencies. We are always working for you.
