The health center offers a variety of medical services including:
Physical exams to help determine the best birth control method
Multiple birth control options
Kentucky has one of the highest cancer death rates in the country. We know early detection is critical to improving survival rates and it is therefore especially important to remain up-to-date on all yearly exams.
The Grayson County Health Center offers free or low-cost well-women exams that include breast exams and pap tests in addition to mammogram referrals for women age 40 and older who qualify.
Tuberculosis (TB) Program

Tuberculosis is an airborne, bacterial disease that most often affects the lungs. However, it also can cause damage to the kidneys, spine and brain. It can be fatal if not treated properly. The Grayson County Health Center offers tuberculosis testing and preventative medicine and treatment.
Immunizations have all but eradicated many diseases that in the past were very serious and deadly. They are essential to the health and welfare of our communities and our nation.
The Grayson County Health Center offers childhood immunizations, school shots and seasonal vaccines for those who qualify.
