Benton-Franklin Health District Prosser Office to Close

Posted: Updated:

PROSSER, Wash. -- The Prosser office of the Benton-Franklin Health District is closing on September 19th because of the lack of clients at the Immunization Clinic and the Environmental Health office.

In a press release from the Health District, they say fewer clients have used the immunization services offered by the clinic because of increased access to immunizations at other Prosser clinics.

The number of Environmental Health clients have also declined, while interactions with Prosser residents have increased.  Environmental Health staff members point to the internet, e-mail and keeping digital records for increased communication with the community.

The Kennewick office will remain open.
