Referrals

If additional long-term care is needed, Pacific Free Clinic staff will provide referrals to an appropriate health center including, but not limited to, primary care providers and other specialty services.

Medications

We provide prescriptions for low-cost medications from nearby pharmacies for patients under our care.

Laboratory Testing and Vaccines

We provide free blood draw services and laboratory testing for patients under our care. Please do not eat or drink anything except water for 8 hours before your visit. This helps us obtain the best possible information about your health. Drink plenty of water (avoid coffee and alcohol) in order to make blood draws easier.

Blood testing for HIV and hepatitis B/C is routinely performed for all patients. We also offer free vaccinations, such as hepatitis A/B and flu immunizations, when available. Typically, the flu vaccine is offered from October to May; the flu vaccine is provided at no cost to all patients and their family members, including children. Other vaccines, including vaccines against hepatitis A/B, TDap (for diptheria, pertussis, and tetanus), MMR (measles, mumps, rubella), and shingles (Zostavax), and PPD skin tests for tuberculosis, are offered at no cost to patients with an urgent medical need. If no urgent medical need is present, patients may be referred to a low-cost community clinic for routine vaccinations.

Nosotros proveemos servicios de análisis de sangre y pruebas de laboratorio gratis para todos pacientes bajo nuestro cuidado. Por favor no coma ni beba (menos tomar agua) durante las 8 horas antes de su visita. Esto nos ayuda obtener mejor información sobre su salud. Tome mucha agua (evite café y alcohol) para hacer la extracción de sangre mas fácil.

Hacemos análisis de sangre para VIH y hepatitis B/C rutinariamente para todos pacientes. También ofrecemos vacunas gratis, como para hepatitis A/B y contra la influenza, cuando están disponibles. Típicamente, ofrecemos la vacuna contra la influenza desde octubre hasta mayo; proveemos la vacuna contra la influenza gratis a todos pacientes y sus familiares, incluyendo a los niños.
