St. Clair County Community Health Needs Assessment
The St. Clair County Health Department is pleased to announce that the 2016 St. Clair County Behavioral Risk Factor Survey (BRFS) and Community
Health Needs Assessment Summary (CHNA) are posted on our Statistics and Data page under
Community Health Assessment Profiles. This process is completed every 5 years to assess the
health of our community. These reports produce comprehensive health data with a purpose to
generate a Community Health Improvement Plan (CHIP) and look at future considerations of how/what funding to use for all public and private groups
that identify health as a priority area. Our goal is to work together as a community on the plan of action and how the actions will be funded.
More information will be shared as the next phase continues.
State, National Public Health Leaders Announce “I Vaccinate”
State and national public health experts, physicians, hospitals, and a private foundation launched the “I Vaccinate” campaign to help parents protect
their children from serious vaccine-preventable diseases that still pose a risk in Michigan communities.
I Vaccinate, designed with input from Michigan mothers, provides the facts parents need to make informed decisions about vaccinations. Most parents
today have never seen first-hand the devastating consequences that vaccine-preventable diseases have on a child, a family, or community. Vaccination is one
of the best ways parents can protect infants, children and teens from 16 potentially harmful diseases.

Live Poultry and Salmonella Risk
Live poultry including chicks, chickens, ducklings, ducks, geese, and turkeys will soon be arriving in an agricultural store or pet store near you.
All poultry have the potential to carry a germ called Salmonella, even though they appear healthy and clean, can still cause illness in humans. Germs are
shed in their droppings and can contaminate a bird’s body and anything in the area where they are housed. People can become infected when they come in
contact with birds, litter, cages, feed and water dishes, and other items or equipment in their environment. Human Salmonella infection may cause fever,
diarrhea and stomach cramps, and some people may develop more severe complications. In recent years, many outbreaks of human illness have been linked to
handling live poultry purchased from feed stores and mail-order hatcheries. View our fact sheet
