Our agency has recently scheduled influenza outreach clinics for the month of January 2021. Below you will find our scheduled flu shot clinics. We will have the high-dose available while supplies last. No appointments are necessary for these clinics. Medicare, Medicaid, most insurances and private pay are accepted.
On Wednesday, December 9th 2020 from 12-6pm at the Pike County Fairgrounds there will be Free COVID-19 Tests available to those who pre-register online or by calling 877-435-8411 (7 a.m.-7 p.m. 7 days a week)
Community testing events serve the residents of Missouri. DHSS is partnering with the Missouri National Guard and local health department to offer these events, and different communities will be reached at different times. The test is a PCR test done by a nasal anterior nares swab to determine if there is an active infection with SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19. This is not an antigen or antibody test. Please allow 30 minutes for completion of testing upon arrival to the testing site. Delays may occur in the event of inclement weather.
***The deadline to order is November 6th. Shirts will be in by November 23rd
Proceeds go to benefit our “Public Health Initiatives”; Our effort to a healthy community through free education and health services that help us cover the costs of free and discounted services within our agency.
Due to COVID-19 concerns our agency has decided to cancel all of our public events until further notice.
These events include but are not limited to: – Turkey Trot 5K Run/Walk – Veteran Appreciation Fair – Camp Horizon – Cookies & Cocoa with Santa – Valentine Gala
We are saddened to have to make this decision but feel it is in the best interest of our community’s health not to hold such events that host large amounts of people. We hope to resume our events next year and that you will join us with excitement when we do!
We will be hosting a second Drive Thru Flu Shot Clinic in Louisiana to offer more of the high-dose and regular flu vaccines.
Each year we offer flu shot clinics around our county to make it easier for residents to receive their flu shots. This year, the flu vaccine is more important than ever before PCHD and DHSS urges Missourians to get vaccinated. In a typical year, over 100,000 Missourians become sick from the flu. Many Missourians of all ages become seriously ill and some are hospitalized. 2020 is anything but typical, and state health officials are urging Missourians to get the flu vaccine by the end of October.
Join us for our upcoming drive thru flu shot clinic:
County Market Parking Lot, Louisiana, MO Wednesday, September 30th 2 p.m. – 4 p.m.

Our agency is a proud member of the Pike Community Care Partnership which organizes a “Back 2 School Fair” each year for county residents.
A message from PCCP:
The Back to School Fair will be held on August 8th from 8-10 am at the Pike County Fairgrounds. This year we will be having a drive through pick up of backpacks filled with supplies only. This is due to the Covid -19 virus. There will not be any activities inside or outside. Once again these backpacks are for all Pike County Mo. pre-school through high school students. Also we are not sending requests for donations due to the impact the virus has had on our county businesses, churches, and organizations. However if anyone would like to donate you can mail your donations to Kim Battern Lumley at 900 Independence Rd, Bowling Green. Mo. 63334. Donations are still needed and would be greatly appreciated.
