Health Department

The Village Health Department oversees the public health & safety of our businesses and residents.  We focus our interests towards environmental health, food service establishments and the overall sanitation of the community.

Health Tip!

It's flu season once again so we encourage you to get a flu shot. Getting an annual flu vaccine is an effective way to prevent the flu. The virus that causes flu exists in several strains, and researchers continuously strive to match the vaccine to the strains that are most prevalent.

Vaccination is a good idea for just about everyone, especially:

  • Children aged six months to five years
  • Adults 50 and over
  • Pregnant women
  • Individuals with chronic conditions such as asthma, diabetes or heart disease

Who shouldn’t be vaccinated? Children less than six months of age, anyone with a severe allergy to chicken eggs, and those who experienced a reaction to a flu vaccination in the past should avoid the shot.

See your doctor or pharmacist to check if flu vaccination is right for you. It’s important to us that our residents remain healthy, happy and well.

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Breast cancer is one of the leading health crises for women in the United States. 1 in 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime. An early diagnosis is critical to survival. Getting a high-quality mammogram and having a clinical breast exam on a regular basis are the most effective ways to detect breast cancer early. Download this Breast Cancer Fact Sheet and visit www.nationalbreastcancer.org for more information.
