Urine based screening for gonorrhea and chlamydia is offered to adolescents at community sites within Oakland County. Clients also complete a questionnaire on sexual activity and receive risk reduction education. Immunization history is reviewed on adolescents at the school clinics and juvenile detention center. The hepatitis B series is completed if time allows. Adolescents are released with an immunization record. Recently, immunizations have been entered into the state system. As of September 30, 2007 9,250 adolescents and young adults have been screened through our project.
