Following the full implementation of a new electronic health record, several months of staff training, and the filling of vacant positions, Pitt County Health Department is pleased to announce that walk-in clinic hours have been reinstated for select services.

“We extend a sincere thank you to our patients for working with us as we made a huge transition from paper to electronic health records. The transition to this new system made it necessary for us to only provide appointment-based services for over a year while we adequately aligned and prepared staff to fully utilize this system,” said Pitt County Health Director, Dr. John Silvernail.

Effective immediately, the following services will be provided on a walk-in basis:

  • Pregnancy Testing
  • Birth Control Pill Pick Up
  • Depo Provera Shots
  • Tuberculosis (TB) Skin Testing and Reading
  • Adult Immunizations (including flu)
  • Sexually Transmitted Disease (STD) Treatment Only, for individuals who already have a confirmed positive test. Note: Appointments must be made for STD screening examinations.

Walk-in hours are as follows until capacity is reached:

  • Mondays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays from 8:00am – 2:00pm
  • Tuesdays from 2:00pm – 5:30pm

Note: Walk-In TB Skin Tests are only offered on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays.

Due to the upcoming holiday closures on December 24th, 25th and 26th and January 1st, walk-in services will not be available on these days. In addition, walk-in services will not be available on December 31st (New Year’s Eve); however, the Agency is open and appointments will be accepted. Also note that future holiday closures may affect walk-in services. Individuals, who prefer to make an appointment in lieu of walk-in services, can call 252-902-2449.
