Bringing Health Services to Your Community: Uncas Health District’s Mobile Health Team

Uncas Mobile Health Team

The Uncas Health District is committed to ensuring the well-being of all residents in our community. That’s why we’re proud to offer the Mobile Health Team, a free program that brings essential healthcare services directly to your community. Through the Mobile Health Team, we’re bringing essential services directly to the people who need them most.

Your health is our priority.

The Mobile Health Team is staffed by licensed healthcare professionals who are passionate about helping individuals and families achieve optimal health and well-being. We believe everyone deserves access to quality healthcare, and that’s why we remove the barriers of transportation and cost by bringing our services directly to where you are.


We are proud to serve the residents of Bozrah, Franklin, Griswold, Lebanon, Lisbon, Montville, Norwich, Preston, Salem, Sprague, and Voluntown. The Mobile Health Team operates by visiting soup kitchens, driving through food pantries, and senior centers to provide education and vital services:

  • COVID-19 and flu vaccines: Protect yourself and your loved ones from preventable illnesses.
  • Rapid testing for Hepatitis C and HIV: Get tested quickly and discreetly in a safe and supportive environment.
  • Syringe services: Access clean needles and harm reduction resources.
  • Tick testing: Stay informed about the risk of tick-borne diseases.
  • Blood pressure screenings: Monitor your heart health and take control of your well-being.
  • Smoking cessation support: Get the help you need to quit smoking for good.
  • Prevention of sexually transmitted infections: Learn how to protect yourself and your partner(s).
  • Education on public health topics: Stay informed about important health issues affecting our community.


No question is too small.

Individuals who visit us at these events can approach us with any questions they may have. We are here to listen and provide support, and we strive to link you to care whenever necessary. For instance, if a Hepatitis C or HIV test result is reactive (positive), the Mobile Health Team can connect you to the appropriate care provider, such as an ID clinic or another healthcare facility.

Prevention is key.

The Mobile Health Team focuses on providing screenings and preventative services to help individuals and families stay healthy and informed. Our primary objective is to keep our communities safe and educated on public health issues.

Taking care of your health has never been easier.

The Uncas Health District’s Mobile Health Team is here to help you stay on top of your health and well-being. Visit our website or call us at 860-823-1189 to learn more about our upcoming events and schedule your visit.

Back to School: Get caught up with vaccines

We are just a few short weeks away from sending our children back to school for the 2023-24 academic year. While shopping for pencils, notebooks, and school clothes may be top of mind, Uncas Health District also reminds parents to ensure their children are up-to-date with their routine vaccinations.

To help parents take care of this important preventative health need, Uncas Health District will be out in the community with our Mobile Health Team offering preventative health care such as blood pressure screening, COVID-19 and Flu vaccines, Hepatitis C / HIV testing, syringe services, wound care info, and information about other health services offered by the Uncas Health District.
