August is National Immunization Awareness Month

National Immunization Awareness Month is a reminder that we all need vaccines right from the start and throughout our lives.

Welcome to GastonHHS.org!

On July 1, 2013, the Gaston County Department of Social Services and the Gaston County Health Department were consolidated into a single agency, the Gaston County Department of Health & Human Services.

For now, the public may not notice much of a difference, because staff at all locations are continuing to conduct their programs while conducting strategic planning. GastonHHS.org will be the new Web address for both sites, so please update your bookmarks.

We'll be adding content here often. In the meantime, while our new site is under construction, we invite you to view the old sites for the Health Department and DSS. The programs remain the same.

Read Interim County Manager Phil Ponder's Statement on Consolidation.
