JCDH Operations

Q:  What if I have an appointment scheduled at JCDH?
A:  Due to the outbreak of the Coronavirus, the Jefferson County Department of Health has changed the way services are offered to ensure your safety. To support social distancing recommendations, we are postponing all non-urgent appointments. If you have a previously scheduled appointment, please do not go to the clinic for that appointment without calling at least 24 hours before the scheduled appointment. We are now offering Telemedicine services by phone or video. Medical treatment and WIC services may be provided over the phone to prevent large groups of patients in the waiting areas and allow continued access to medical services for our patients. If you are sick and need to see a provider, please call (205) 588-5234.
Q:  How can I get my WIC benefits?
A:  WIC services may be provided over the phone to prevent large groups of patients in the waiting areas and to allow continued access to medical services for our patients. The JCDH Mobile WIC unit will be available Monday – Friday, 1 pm to 4 pm, in the parking lot of the Guy M. Tate location (1400 Sixth Avenue South, Birmingham, AL 35233). Patients need to call (205) 558-2144 to schedule an appointment to pick up special formulas, lost cards, and breastfeeding supplies.
Q:  Can I still obtain a vital record?
A:  The Vital Records department is operating as normal. You may attain a vital record Monday – Friday at the Guy M. Tate location. Be sure to provide an accepted form of identification.
Q:  Can I still attend Foodhandler’s classes?
