If you are like us at Callaway County Health Department, the year has flown by. We are almost into 2015! Let’s talk about what we need to do before the year ends.
Flu shots need to be given as soon as possible. We currently have 136 shots left and 2 doses of flu mist. Cost is $25.00. It protects you from 4 different types of flu.
Call and check to see if you are up to date on all your other shots.
Food handlers cards that were issued the first year are now due. Especially if you waited until the last-minute to get yours before it became mandatory, yours will be expiring in the next month at least. Get into the office and get that class taken or you can study on-line (here on the environmental services tab!) and just come in to take the test. We are still offering the full classes on the last Tuesday of each month and testing only is done on the second Thursday of each month from 5:00 pm to 6:30 pm. If you think the building is closed, come to the environmental door and it should be open for you to come in. Cost is still $15.00 and the cards are good for 2 years. Right now we have somewhere around 250 people who need to renew their cards before the end of 2014. If you would like to arrange a special class for your group, call Mylene at 573-642-5750 x. 224 to discuss it with her. The calendar is filling up and she has family obligations for the holidays as well.
Birth and death certificates are available at Callaway County Health Department, you will need a photo id and $15 for birth (or $13 death) cash or debit card. You can also register to vote here as well, update any voter’s registration information you might need to as well.
Septic system fences need to be installed if you have a new system. We will be traveling the county in the next few weeks to see if there are any installed. If you don’t have yours up, expect a letter from us! According to our ordinance, it has to be installed before occupancy of the facility.
Enjoy the rest of this year, wishing all of you a safe and happy Veteran’s Day (we are off) and remember to thank a Vet for all their sacrifices.
