HJAHC Mobile Health Van Brings Services to PJ Hill Elementary School
Feb 24, 2020 News & Announcements
Trenton, NJ — Trenton Public School District in collaboration with the Henry J. Austin Health Center, City of Trenton Health Department, and State of New Jersey Department of Health, Division of Community Health is now providing health services to students at school.
HJAHC’s mobile health unit will be on site at school for the first time Monday Feb. 3, from 1 – 4 pm at PJ Hill Elementary School, 1010 East State Street in Trenton. School nurses are contacting families to inform them about health requirements for school.
“We want to ensure that children have access to quality healthcare right in their neighborhood,” said Micah Freeman, TPS Supervisor of Nurses. “Immunizations protect the health of our children and our community. We need all public school students to be up-to-date on immunizations.”
To receive HJAHC mobile services, families must provide:
- Student identification — such as a birth certificate, social security card or valid passport
- Student immunization records — list of previous shots
- Adult identification — for adults who are not parents, bring legal documentation showing proof of guardianship
- If insured, bring proof of insurance
- If not insured, bring proof of address
Henry J Austin Health Center staff will be providing health screenings, immunizations, annual physicals, treating minor ailments, and making referrals for follow-up care. Ability to pay for health services is not a barrier to receiving care, due to the partnership with the City and other funders.
The mobile health van will be providing health services every Monday throughout the school year. For more information families should contact their child’s school nurse.
Trenton Health Team is proud to help promote these events and encourage families to participate.
