PITTSFIELD, Mass — 2nd Street will host the Community Health Programs (CHP) Mobile Health unit on Wednesday, February 28 from 1-3 pm.

CHP’s Mobile Health teams offer the same services as a primary care provider or typical urgent care clinic, making it an excellent alternative for people with transportation challenges.

Participants do not have to be a CHP patient to use this service. In most cases, the visit will be covered by the individual’s insurance. For those who are uninsured or can’t afford to pay, services will be provided free of charge. A sliding fee scale is also available for eligible patients.

The CHP Mobile Health program provides:

  • Same-day urgent care
  • COVID-19 and flu and vaccines/testing
  • Blood pressure checks
  • Treatment of minor sickness, infections and injuries
  • UTI & STI testing and birth control services
  • Wellness checks, including food security and nutrition assistance
