Zika Virus (Zika) – Travel Information
Traveling somewhere tropical? Protect yourself from the Zika Virus! Zika is spread to people through the bite of an infected mosquito (Aedes aegypti and Aedes albopictus).
All travelers should take steps to avoid mosquito bites, especially pregnant women, to prevent Zika infection and other mosquito-borne diseases.
Lead Poisoning – Know the Facts
Lead poisoning can be caused by swallowing or breathing lead. Children under the age of 6 are most at risk although lead can also harm the
unborn baby of a pregnant woman. Lead can cause learning and behavior problems such as slow growth and development, hearing and speech damage,
and attention issues. These problems may never go away. Children can be exposed to lead from a variety of sources; the most common source is lead
dust and lead paint in older homes. The only way to know if your child has been exposed to lead is to have a simple blood test at a doctor’s office
or St. Clair County Health Department. Call (810) 987-5300 to schedule a lead testing appointment. To learn more about lead, visit
here for additional lead resources.
