Sweetwater – Nolan County Health Department
our mission
ood health is basic to the enjoyment of a full and productive life. Our mission is to provide the best possible opportunity for good health to the citizens of Nolan County through health promotion and the prevention of disease.

The Sweetwater-Nolan County Health Department will no longer post Covid 19 case counts. For those who wish to follow the case counts, please visit cdc.gov or dshs.texas.gov. These websites offer not only case counts by county, but also other great information on Covid vaccines and symptoms of Covid.

Currently, our focus is offering the Covid 19 vaccine to the public. We offer the Moderna vaccine each Thursday, between 8:30 and 11:00 and 1:00 to 4:00. These vaccines are at no cost to you. We also have the Pfizer vaccine available for children 5 through 11 on Thursdays or on Wednesdays during regular immunization hours, which are 8 to 11:30 and 1:00 to 4:30. Please call the Sweetwater-Nolan County Health Department at 325-235-5463, if you have any questions.

Protect yourself and other by following theses steps:

1. If you are sick, stay home, unless you are seeking medical care.
2. If you have a weakened immune system, or underlying health conditions, that put you at greater risk of becoming ill, stay home. People 65 and older are also at greater risk of developing severe disease.
3. Wash your hands frequently with soap and water, for at least 20 seconds.
4. Disinfect hard surfaces and frequently touched surfaces, such as countertops, doorknobs and faucets. When you shop, wipe down the handle of your shopping cart with antibacterial wipes.
5. Practice social distancing by keeping six feet between you and other people, especially if they are sick.
6. Cover your cough with your elbow or a tissue and throw that tissue in the trash.
7. Avoid touching your face, eyes, and mouth.
We ask that you use caution and do what is best for you and your family.
