Crawford County Health Department (CCHD) announces that it will host its opening adult flu vaccination clinic on Thursday, October 1 from 1-4:00 pm at the Health Department. The first three vaccination clinics will be limited to adults only due to anticipated late arrival of the vaccine formulas preferred for younger children. The Department encourages flu vaccination for everyone over six months of age and plans to provide ample opportunities for both children and adults to be vaccinated this season.
CCHD plans to provide vaccinations at its 202 N. Christopher Blvd. location at the following times:
Thursday, October 1, 1:00 pm-4:00pm (Adults Only)
Monday, October 5, 1:00 pm-4:00 pm (Adults Only)
Thursday, October 8, 1:00 pm-4:00pm (Adults Only)
Thursday, October 15, 9:00 am-11:00 am
Wednesday, October 21, 3:00 pm-7:00 pm
Thursday, November 5, 1:00 pm-4:00 pm
Thursday, November 12, 1:00 pm-4:00 pm
Wednesday, November 18, 3:00 pm-6:00 pm
In addition, CCHD will be at LTC Zwermann Arts Center, Rm SU-211 on Wednesday, October 21, 12:00 pm-1:30 pm. CCHD will also have a Drive-Through clinic for adults at the Robinson City Park on Thursday, October 29, 1:00 pm-4:00 pm, weather permitting. In case of inclement weather, the clinic will be held indoors at the Health Department. The Drive-Through is a great opportunity for those with limited mobility to receive a shot without leaving their vehicle.
Vaccinations will also be provided every Monday morning throughout November and December during the Department’s regular “Walk In” Clinics. Persons wishing to be vaccinated that are unable to attend one of these organized clinics may call the Health Department and schedule an individual appointment. Special arrangements can be made to accommodate those with limited mobility.
There is a charge for the seasonal flu shot. Medicare, Medicaid, Blue Cross/Blue Shield and several other insurance companies can be billed for flu vaccination for those persons presenting appropriate cards.
Residents with questions about flu vaccination, scheduling, or insurance coverage should call CCHD at 544-8798.

A strain of highly pathogenic avian influenza H5N2 has appeared in poultry flocks in the U.S. including states surrounding Illinois (Kentucky, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Iowa and Missouri). At this time no birds in flocks in Illinois have been diagnosed with this virus. However, if citizens want to know what to do if they see die-offs of poultry or wild birds they can direct questions to the Illinois department of agriculture (217-782-4944) or USDA (217-547-6030).
