First District Health Unit Drive-Through Exchange
The First District Health Unit Good Neighbor Project will offer a drive-through syringe exchange Fridays from NOON to 4:00PM, beginning April 24th, 2020.
To participate, bring your Syringe Exchange ID and your biohazard bucket with used syringes. you must be an existing SSP client. Due to COVID-19 restrictions, no new clients will be seen at this time.
When entering the parking lot, drive past the main doors toward Door B and stop at the orange cones ( or line up behind the car ahead of you.) An SSP nurse will either come to your vehicle and have you place the biohazard bucket into a red bag or will accompany you to the syringe kiosk for disposal of used syringes. For everyone’s safety, the nurse will be wearing personal protective. You will be given your supplies and sent on your way. We will not be testing for HIV or Hep C at this time.
