Tippecanoe County Extends Needle Exchange Program

v

Tippecanoe County officials have voted to extend that county’s needle exchange program for another year.

Some residents and health officials had called for the end of the program. But with more than 150 new cases of Hepatitis C in the last year, Tippecanoe County Health Officer Dr. Jeremy Adler requested more time for the program to see a decline in those numbers.

Earlier this year the Madison County and Lawrence County needle exchanges were ended.
