Contact - Kathy Janer, (989) 895-4003

The Bay County Health Department will once again provide free vision and hearing screenings for Pre-Kidergarten children as required by the State of Michigan's Public Health Code Act 268 of 1978 before entering Kindergarten.

The purpose of screening children of this age is to detect any vision or hearing defects as early as possible. Difficulties can often be remedied if discovered at a time when easiest to treat. 

Please contact the school your children will be attending for a schedule of the screenings sites and times or for more information visit the hearing and vision webpage at
