Refugee Health

Florida Department of Health in Marion County

Our Refugee Health program provides culturally sensitive health services to newly arriving refugees, persons recently granted asylum, and other arrivals eligible for refugee benefits.

We screen newly arriving refugees to identify health problems. We give each new arrival a health assessment and any needed vaccinations. We refer those who need attention for their health conditions to health care providers for follow-up care.

For more information, visit the Department’s Refugee Health page.
