I bet we’re going to get a Health Department now

There has been a lot of noise in the paper about the issue of not having a health department in Delaware County which would come in handy right about now. In yesterday’s Delaware County Daily Times, they state…

Last week, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services announced action by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to provide Pennsylvania with $16.9 million in funding to support coronavirus response. Pennsylvania Department of Health said … Delaware County will not receive any of this funding.

Chester had a whole Health Department when the Republicans were in office.. Check it out…
Not just a name…. Director and Employees


Back where I came from (the Niagara frontier) the Health Department came in pretty useful. They set up well-baby clinics and mass immunizations at the fire hall, and gave the kindergartners their first dental exams (the big chair with the “ears” was set up in the nurses’ office). Free dental checkups and fluoride treatment were also available at the health department building (set up in a historic Roycroft building, which is how that building survived). My parents didn’t make much, so that was how we got medical care.
