County Health Department Reports a Spike in Confirmed Influenza Cases

Influenza Vaccination Clinic Announced


Officials at the Howell County Health Department have reported a recent surge in the number of influenza cases reported to their office.  Director of Nursing, Carma Wheeler, RN, states that the Department has been notified of 24 new confirmed cases in the county since last week.  Statewide, there have been approximately 4,500 laboratory confirmed cases of influenza this season.  

Centers for Disease Control (CDC) reports that influenza cases are peaking in nearly every region of the State.  Residents that have not yet received a flu vaccination this year are encouraged to do so now.   In light of the new influenza activity in the area, the HCHD will be providing another opportunity for Howell County residents to attend an upcoming flu vaccination clinic.  The clinic is scheduled for Monday, January 23, 2017, from 1:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m., at the Howell County Health Department, 180 Kentucky in West Plains.

We will continue to offer flu vaccinations on a walk-in basis at the West Plains office.
