LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) - A new $160,000 mobile health unit is hitting the streets of Greater Lafayette.
After more than a year in the works, it was unveiled by the Tippecanoe County Health Department Wednesday morning.
The mobile unit was built to help increase community outreach.
It will offer year-round STD, Hepatitis C and HIV testing. Health Department officials will also be able to provide vaccines and immunizations.
The Health Department plans to use the mobile unit during festivals and back to school programs.
The county's syringe service program will also be available through the unit.
It will run every Tuesday from 3 to 6 pm at the Lafayette Transitional Housing Center.
