Various funding sources, including the local tax levy, enable us to perform these services and carry out public health functions. We offer immunizations for children and adults and this includes our yearly influenza vaccination clinics offered throughout the county. Maternal-Child Health services, the WIC program, and emergency preparedness are services funded through federal grants. As a department, we also offer services and education about car seat use and installation, prescription drug abuse, safe infant sleep, diabetic education, breastfeeding promotion, smoking cessation, emergency volunteer response, school health, and child care provider education.
