National Infant Immunization Week: April 27 - May 4

National Infant Immunization Week (NIIW) is an annual observance to highlight the importance of protecting infants from vaccine-preventable diseases. This year, NIIW is April 27 – May 4.  To celebrate, we are holding a contest on our Facebook page to give away a child care kit. For more information on the contest, click HERE

Vaccines are among the most successful and cost-effective public health tools available for preventing disease and death. They not only help protect vaccinated individuals, but also help protect entire communities by preventing and reducing the spread of infectious diseases.

NALOXONE Avaialble at the Health Department

Do you or someone you know struggle with an addiction to heroin or opioid prescription medications (such as oxycodone, hydrocodone, methadone, morphine, and fantanyl)? Overdose with opioids is a significant danger that can cause death.

Naloxone is an inexpensive, fast-acting drug that when administered during an opioid overdose, blocks the effects of opiates on the brain and restores breathing within two to three minutes of administration. The health department has a limited supply of Naloxone nasal spray available to the public. For more information or to make an appointment to receive a Naloxone kit, call 435-657-3260.
