Ebola Information

Breast Cancer Awareness Month

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Here at the WCHD we encourage women to get screened regularly to catch cancer before it becomes a major problem. When cancer is found early the chances of survival are much greater. We offer free mammograms through Heber Valley Medical Center for those who qualify. Follow the link for more information. 

Get Protected Against the Flu

Protect yourself from the flu this year and be a flu fighter by getting a flu shot...or flu mist for those who qualify and don't like needles.  

The health department has many different options available, including high dose flu vaccine, intradermal flu vaccine, and flu mist. Make an appointment by calling 435-657-3307 or just stop by the health department.

Zombies Against Drunk Driving in October

It's October and that means you are probably seeing all kinds of monsters popping up around town.  This year, public safety officials are getting a little help from some of these monsters to let the public know about the dangers of driving while drunk.

Zombies Against Drunk Driving (ZADD) is a campaign from the Utah Highway Safety Office which uses these popular monsters to attract attention to this serious problem. On average, 33 people die a year in Utah from alchol-impaired driver crashes.

Take action and help the zombies spread the word. Click Read More to see the zombies in action.
