2015 KOIN Award

MRC Coordinator Clarinda Sheffler, Director Nancy Crewe
and Preparedness Coordinator Jenilee Kenyon with the 2015 KOIN Award

The Kentucky Outreach and Information Network (KOIN) was established by the Kentucky Cabinet for Health and Family Services/Department for Public Health in 2004. KOIN is a network of volunteers that are able to share information in emergencies to people who are deaf or hard of hearing, blind or visually impaired, have limited English proficiency, live in remote rural locations, or are elderly or disabled.

This year, the Madison County Health Department was selected and recognized for “Outstanding Emergency Preparedness Efforts in Support of KOIN”.  Special thanks go to our partner organizations in Madison County that help our local KOIN be a success. Your support provides a way for vital information to be delivered to these groups in our county during an emergency.

Flu Bug

Flu Shots

Flu season has arrived!  No one looks forward to the cough, body aches, fatigue and other side effects that are a result of contracting the flu.  Preventive measures such as frequent handwashing and covering your mouth and nose with a tissue when you cough or sneeze can reduce your chance of getting the flu.  However, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and Madison County Health Department recommend the flu vaccine as your first step of protection.

Everyone 6 months of age and older is encouraged to get the flu vaccine.  The following people are considered at greater risk for complications from the flu and are specifically urged to get the vaccine:

  • Young children
  • Adults 65 years and older
  • Pregnant women
  • People with chronic health conditions such as asthma, diabetes or heart and lung disease

Flu vaccines are now available at both MCHD clinics. You may call for an appointment or walk in from 8:00-10:00 am each day.
