The Adair County Health Department, located in Kirksville, Missouri, strives to protect and promote the health of Adair County residents and assure the public health needs of the community are met.
Established on March 15, 1979, the Adair County Health Department has grown from its modest beginnings in the basement of the Adair County Courthouse to one of the largest health departments in Northeast Missouri.
The department provides many services to the public including health clinics, home health nursing and rehabilitation services, environmental services, emergency planning, health education, family planning, and WIC clinic services.
While some services are available at no cost to Adair County residents, others have a fee based on the cost of providing the service, or may be available pending financial eligibility.
Currently the Adair County Health Department staff include registered nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapist, family nurse practitioner, emergency planner/health educator, environmental specialist, and excellent support staff.
Flu Season is here and now is the time to make sure your family is protected from influenza and the serious complications that can accompany it.
Getting a flu vaccine is the best way to protect against the flu. Everyone six months of age and older should get a flu vaccine. It is especially important for young children, pregnant women, older people and people with chronic health problems.
Take time to get your family vaccinated against the flu now. By getting the flu shot now, individuals are not only protecting themselves from the flu, but are less likely to spread the virus to family members, co-workers and others.
The flu vaccine is readily available this season in all communities. Contact your doctor or visit mo.gov to find a clinic near you.
