Mobile Veteran Center coming to PCHD

Pike County Health Department Home Health & Hospice and the Columbia Vet Center are teaming up to bring help directly to veterans.  The Mobile Vet Center or MVC, a 37-foot-long vehicle, will be in the PCHD parking lot on Thursday, June 24th from 9:00 AM – 1:00 PM.  This partnership makes it an easy way to bring help to veterans who don’t live close to an office where help is readily available.

“We are a rural community that does not have these services available locally, so the Mobile Vet Center being able to visit our community and provide that same level of service to our local veterans is a wonderful to have.” Said Tracy Brookshier, Marketing Coordinator for PCHD.

Veterans can stop at the Mobile Center for information about veteran benefits, free dog tags, counseling for bereavement, marriage or family. As well as Suicide prevention referrals and much more.

J&J Vaccine being replaced with MODERNA for today’s clinic (4/13/21)

Today’s Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 Vaccine will be replaced with the MODERNA COVID-19 Vaccine due to CDC planning to pause the administration of the J&J. Those with appointments today will receive the MODERNA vaccine if they wish and will return for a second dose on May 11th.  Please be patient with our staff this morning as we are working swiftly this morning to ensure everyone is notified of this change.

 

The Food and Drug Administration asked states on Tuesday to temporarily halt using Johnson & Johnson’s Covid-19 vaccine “out of an abundance of caution” after six women in the U.S. developed a rare blood-clotting disorder. “Right now, these adverse events appear to be extremely rare,” the FDA said in a joint statement with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. “COVID-19 vaccine safety is a top priority for the federal government, and we take all reports of health problems following COVID-19 vaccination very seriously.”

3/2/2021 COVID-19 Vaccine Clinic Scheduled

Beginning at 1:00 p.m. on Friday, February 26th, 2021 we will be accepting appointments for all upcoming COVID-19 Vaccine clinics online here or by calling 573-324-2111. This will close once all appointments have been booked and re-open when a new clinic has been scheduled. Be the first to know of these clinic/vaccine updates by signing up for our PCHD E-News. No internet or e-mail? No problem, call our office and ask how we can help.
