The Jackson County Health Department focuses on protecting the community

against diseases.  We offer immunizations for infants, children, adolescents, and

adults.  The immunization schedules we follow are approved by the

Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and the Advisory Committee

on Immunization Practices (ACIP).

We accept and bill most insurances.  We are unable to accept Adult Medicaid at

this time.

If children do not have insurance coverage or the insurance does not

cover vaccines, we are a Vaccines for Children provider (VFC) and are able to

provide vaccines at no cost; however, we ask for a donation to cover the administration and cost of supplies.

If adults do not have insurance coverage or insurance does not cover vaccines, we have an Adult State program offering vaccines at no cost; however, we ask for a donation to cover the administration and cost of supplies.

Head Lice

 

Head lice is a common problem that usually affects school-age children and their family.  They can attach to the hair of anyone's head.  It doesn't matter if the hair is clean or dirty.  Head lice infestations occur across all social, economic, and age groups.  ANYONE can get head lice.

Though head lice may be a nuisance, they do not cause serious illness or carry any diseases.  With the appropriate treatment and continuous monitoring, head lice can be treated easily and efficiently.
