Handwashing: Putting Your Health in Your Hands

With many diseases circulating around the community, handwashing gives people the opportunity to take an active role in their own health. Handwashing is easy to do and it's one of the most effective ways to prevent the spread of many types of infection and illness in all settings—from home and workplace to child care facilities and hospitals.

Vaccinate Before It's Too Late!

Flu season is here - get your flu shot now so you are better protected from getting sick. Come in to the health department or call 435-657-3307 for more information. 

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.

Dining with Diabetes Classes

The health department, Heber Valley Hospital, and USU Extension host a monthly meeting to help those with diabetes (or their caregivers) with information on how to live healthy and keep the condition under control. These meetings provide a place where people can learn from each other while also receiving information from health experts. Activities include learning and demonstrating recipes for diabetes-friendly meals. 

Meetings are held on the 4th Wednesday of every month at 6:00 PM at the health department. For more informaiton or to participate in the program, call Jonelle at 435-657-3260. Click "Read More" to see a story by KSL on the program.

Yellow Fever Vaccine Notice

The manufacturer of the YF-Vax yellow fever vaccine, Sanofi Pasteur, has announced a shortage of YF-Vax that will last until mid-2018. Because of the shortage of YF-Vax supply, Sanofi Pasteur has worked with CDC and the US Food and Drug Administration to make an alternative yellow fever vaccine, Stamaril, available at select locations until YF-Vax supply returns. There are only five clinics offering Stamaril currently (Wasatch County is NOT one of them).
