Refugee Program


The Gaston County Health Department offers a basic physical exam, immunizations, and necessary laboratory screenings according to individual needs, based on recommendations from the CDC, NCDHHS, and the Office of Refugee Resettlement. 
Services offered do not cover the scope of Immigration services, or any procedures, exams, or tests, that are required to be completed by a Civil Surgeon.
