Monday morning, officials with Planned Parenthood of Greater Texas encouraged all residents of the Paso del Norte region to keep up-to-date with doctor’s visits, preventative care, immunizations and other healthcare needs.
“Planned Parenthood of Greater Texas is accepting new patients during the pandemic, continues to accept all major insurance providers and remains committed to providing affordable services for those who don’t have insurance,” said Miranda Aguirre, director of the El Paso Health Center.
“While many of those services may require an in-person visit, Planned Parenthood of Greater Texas offers a range of services which allow you to continue to get prescriptions for birth control, treatments for urinary tract infections and other important healthcare without having to travel to a health center.”
