Health Officials Passing Out Condoms & Plan B at Rock Jam

In an effort to curb the number of unwanted pregnancies that could occur at Rock Jam, health officials are passing out condoms, educating event goers about safe sex and making the Plan B pill available.

Recently Nurse–Family Partnership Supervisor Wanda Scott told the Mesa County Commissioners that referrals to her agency from the Mesa County Health Department quadruple every year after the Country Jam event.

On average the clinic says it sees between 25 to 30 pregnancies a month, but five weeks after the festival that number jumps to almost 80 a month.
