Join us at our 3rd annual Lakeside Beach Cleanup Challenge on Saturday, September 16 at 9:00 a.m.

Poster of beach cleanup Volunteers should meet at Lakeside Beach, corner of Gratiot and Holland roads in Port Huron. There is no park entrance fee and no event registration fee. Teams will tackle the litter and cigarette butt waste generated at the Blue Water Area’s largest, busiest beach and playground, and will be scored for heaviest amount of trash collected and most cigarette butts collected. Youth can earn National Honors Society service hours. Despite the fact that Lakeside Beach and Playground is a smoke-free beach, cigarette waste remains a problem. Registration is not required, but encouraged.

Tick Bite Prevention. Wear long pants and long sleeves.
         Use insect repellent. Tick proof yard as much as possible. Check for ticks after spending time outside. Don't assume a person is immune.


Travel Notice: Yellow Fever Vaccine Shortage

There is currently a Yellow Fever vaccine shortage across the United States and Yellow Fever vaccine supply will soon be depleted. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has announced that it will begin to use a new Yellow Fever vaccine called Stamaril™ but this vaccine will not be available until 2018 and only at limited locations which have not yet been announced. Travelers who are in need of Yellow Fever vaccine for entry into certain foreign countries may have difficulty obtaining Yellow Fever vaccine.

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.
