Has anyone tried to use Health Unit Services in Liberty County lately? Well, I am here to report that it is impossible! The RN that administered the vacinations retired and a child in Liberty County no longer has access to immunizations at a county facility. I simply can not understand why Dayton, Liberty,etc. children are unable to obtain the same level of service as other children in Texas. In order to receive government mandated immunizations, Liberty County children are required to pay. The immunization is no or low cost - however, you must pay a $25 free to the doctor. If you go to Galveston or Harris County, this service is FREE to pre-school children. It was said to me, "just take your insurance card and take your kid to their personal physician." It wasn't my "kid" that I was trying to be vaccinated! I was helping a single mom. WHAT IS LIBERTY COUNTY doing with the Federal and State funding that has been allocated for this service? Just wondering what is going on!!!

You are not only talking about State and Federal money. Where is our Hospital District TAX money at for things like this. If our tax dollars can go to indigent care then they should also be going for things like this. Maybe this so called Liberty Hospital can not even give vaccinations anymore. What a waste of TAXPAYER MONEY. Maybe this money all disappeared like other money in this County.

Thats very true! As Medical Assistant, I have notice some children DONT get vaccines because they have NO money! This is SAD, we are in the USA NOT in a third world country. Where is my tax money going to???????
