We are offering a prenatal class on Thursday 12/15 and Thursday 12/22 from 4:00-5:00 each day. Moms and Dads are both welcome as we discuss stages of delivery, bathing, feeding, immunizations, safe sleep, car seat safety and more. Attend both sessions for a chance to win a pack and play. Classes are no charge.
Everyone here at the Macon County Health Department wishes you a happy, safe, and healthy holiday season. Always Wear Your Seatbelt; Drive Sober; Focus on the Road; Don’t drive distracted; Don’t Drive Drowsy. Make it to your family safe this Thanksgiving.
Flu shots are available at the health department Monday-Thursday from 7:45 am-5:30 pm, no appointment necessary. Due to unavailability of the flu mist we will not provide flu vaccinations in schools this year-sorry! We encourage you to bring your child in to the office or to see your medical provider for the flu shot.
Our annual drive thru flu shot clinics will be on Tuesday October 4 from noon until 6:00 p.m. at three different locations: Atlanta Community Center; Callao Christian Church, and, Macon County Fairgrounds for adults 18 and older. Bring your insurance, Medicaid or Medicare card or you can self-pay (under 65 years – $30.00; 65 years and older – $50.00). Our drive thru flu vaccination clinics will be conducted as a public health emergency preparedness exercise that will help strengthen the health of our community. Our services are provided on a non-discriminatory basis.
