Current Diseases in the News

The ultimate mission for the Department of Public Health is to protect the health and well-being of those within this community. To minimize the impact of disease, staff monitors activity, investigates potential illness outbreaks and provides preventative measures. By gathering information and following suggested guidelines for action, individuals can do their part to extend this protective reach.

Titer Screening Services

Many contagious diseases have been managed by childhood vaccination efforts, but several of them — including measles, mumps, pertussis (whooping cough) and varicella (chickenpox) — have resurfaced across the nation as immunity levels decrease. To help individuals know if they are immune or require a booster for these preventable diseases, the Division of Health Services offers titer screening services.
