It’s that time of year again when the annual x-ray mobile unit returns to Scioto County. The Scioto County Commissioners announced Thursday the mobile unit will be parked next to the TB Clinic at the corner of Seventh and Court streets.

The mobile unit is free to all tuberculosis reactors in Scioto County, and is made available through money provided by the TB levy.

Approval has been given by the Portsmouth Police Department for the sides of the street to be blocked off for parking on Seventh Street, next to the TB Clinic and James Dickey Post 23 of the American Legion. The Portsmouth Police Department also gave approval for the mobile unit to be parked at the TB Clinic location for the entire four days.

The Commissioners said the mobile unit is available only to Scioto County TB reactors.

The schedule for the Scioto County TB Clinic x-ray mobile unit:

  • Monday, June 24 - 9 a.m. - 12 noon / 1 p.m. - 4 p.m.
  • Tuesday, June 25 - 12 noon - 5 p.m. / 6 p.m. - 8 p.m.
