Health Dept. Teams up with Community Partners for Drive-Through Flu Vaccination Clinic

Thank you to everyone who came out to support and take part in the Camden County Health Department’s drive-through flu vaccination clinic. The event not only provided a quick, convenient way for residents to get their flu shot but also served as an emergency preparedness exercise, bringing community partners together to simulate response to a potential disaster such as pandemic flu or bioterrorism.

Residents with Functional, Access, or Medical Needs Urged to Register with Health Department

 

Hurricane season officially begins June 1 which means it’s time for residents along Georgia’s coast to prepare – especially those who may have functional and access or medical needs and no way to evacuate if a storm is heading our way. The Functional, Access, and Medical Needs Registry is made up of residents who may require transport and medical assistance during a hurricane evacuation and have no other resources such as family, friends, neighbors, or church membeFMN Ad District.inddrs to help them if they need to evacuate. Residents must apply to be on the registry and are encouraged to register now.

Those on the Registry will be evacuated to an American Red Cross shelter in an inland county that will likely be in a gymnasium or similar setting and could be several hours away. The Registry is truly a last resort, but if a hurricane is threatening our area, it is important that health department officials know where the most vulnerable residents are located so that evacuation assistance can be provided to them. People living in nursing homes, assisted living facilities, and personal care homes are not eligible for the Functional, Access, and Medical Needs Registry and must follow their facility’s emergency plan.

Functional needs registrants are individuals who may need services to maintain their independence in a shelter. This includes children and adults with physical, sensory, mental health, and cognitive and/or intellectual disabilities affecting their ability to function independently without assistance. Medical needs registrants are individuals who require support of trained medical professionals. This includes those individuals who may need assistance with managing unstable, terminal, or contagious conditions that require observation and ongoing treatment.

To apply, residents should call the Camden County Health Department at 576-3040 (Woodbine) or 882-8515 (St. Marys). The application and protected health information authorization form can also be downloaded HERE.
