Does your child fall in the insurance gap? In other words, does your child neither qualify for Medicare/Medicaid nor receive private insurance coverage? If so, we have funding to provide basic physicals and basic dental checkups and services for children at the SW Health Clinic. This funding is specifically for children, including undocumented children. To schedule an appointment for a pediatric physical, call 352-334-7910. To schedule an appointment for a pediatric dental exam instead, call 352-334-8839. When you call to schedule, mention that you need funding from the Medical Guild Grant.
COVID-19 Testing & Vaccines
FREE COVID-19 testing is available at the SW Health Clinic on Mondays and Fridays. Call 352-334-7910 to make an appointment. During the call, be sure to specify you want COVID-19 testing at the SW Health Clinic. Otherwise, you will be scheduled for the drive-thru site.
Vaccines are available on Mondays by appointment only. In addition, testing and vaccine events continue throughout the community. Vaccinations will also be available at High Schools ages 16 and up. Please see the PDF to the right for important information about vaccines for high schoolers.
