ACHD clinic moves to Downtown
The Allegheny County Health Department (ACHD) is moving its Immunization Clinic from its current location on Forbes Avenue in Oakland to the fourth floor of the Hartley-Rose building in downtown Pittsburgh at 425 First Avenue. The new location is between Cherry Way and First Avenue, next to the Art Institute on the Boulevard of the Allies.
“Our new downtown location will provide an improved clinical site to best serve the citizens of Allegheny County and assure that everyone who needs vaccinations for travel or other, can get access,” said Dr. Karen Hacker, director of the Allegheny County Health Department.
The Immunization Clinic will be closed on January 17, 18 and 19 for the move. Phones will also be down during this time. Business will resume on Friday, January 20 at 9 a.m. in the new location.
The phone number to the clinic will also remain the same, 412- 578-8062.
The new location of the clinic is close to a number of bus lines. Information on bus lines and transit is available on the Port Authority of Allegheny County’s website at http://www.portauthority.org or by calling 412-442-2000.
For those driving to the clinic, there are parking options in close proximity. The three closest to the new location are the Mon Wharf and the First and Second Avenue lots, in that order: http://www.pittsburghparking.com/garages-and-attended-lots. Station Square, right across the Smithfield Street Bridge, also has parking available: http://www.stationsquare.com/info/parking.
The STD-HIV/AIDS Clinic and Prevention Point Pittsburgh needle exchange will not be relocating. They will remain at 3441 Forbes Avenue in Oakland.
