Save Our Clinics

    1. Petition by

      District Council 37 and CPHS - Commission on the Public's Health System

We, the undersigned, oppose the closure of the NYC Dept. of Health and Mental Hygiene (DOHMH) Tremont and Corona Immunization Clinics at a time when uninsured and under-insured children need immunization services more than ever.
As of August 21, 2013, the Fort Greene Immunization Clinic will be the only DOHMH clinic in New York City offering free and low-cost immunizations. The Fort Greene Immunization Clinic will only be open during the workweek, Monday through Friday, for only 4 hours a day.
We oppose DOHMH's decision to:

* Abandon an essential service that is part of their core public health mission

* Cut free and low-cost immunization services during the August back-to-school rush when most parents get their children vaccinated

* Reduce public access to vaccines after consecutive years of new influenza virus outbreaks

* Limit Fort Greene Immunization Clinic hours to only 8:30 am - 12 noon, Monday-Friday

* Withhold this information from the public and the Department of Education.

      The City Clinics are a last resort for those without MDs.

      Immunization is our first defense against epidemic. NYC cannot afford to lose our Immunization Clinics.

      Without immunizations for simple diseases we are all affected. Lower income people work very hard and their children should not be used as pawns. keep the clinics open at times that parents can bring their children without having to take a day off.

      Health should be of paramount importance to all NY'ers, and the human race as a whole. To not stop disease at the earliest possible juncture is to spread disease to all.
