Free Mammograms October 28

In observance of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, the Glynn County Health Department’s Breast and Cervical Cancer Program (BCCP) is partnering with the Southeast Georgia Health System Breast Care Center’s Mobile Mammography Program to enroll women into BCCP, provide breast screenings, and offer free mammograms from 9 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. on Monday, October 28, at the Sparrow’s Nest located at 2911 Altama Avenue in Brunswick. Women who meet certain annual income guidelines and are 40-64 years of age without insurance will be eligible to receive a screening mammogram at no cost.

No appointment necessary. For more information on the Breast and Cervical Cancer Program, go to GaCHD.org/bccp or call the Glynn County Health Department at 912-264-3961.


The Glynn County Health Department now has flu vaccine available. The flu vaccine is recommended for everyone over six months of age, including pregnant women.

To make it even more convenient for residents to get vaccinated, a drive-through flu vaccination clinic will be held from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Thursday, October 24, at the Glynn County Health Department located at 2747 Fourth Street. Cash, checks, credit/debit cards, most major insurances, Medicaid, and Medicare will be accepted.

It takes about two weeks after getting a flu shot for the vaccine to provide the body with protection against the flu. While getting the flu vaccine is the best way to prevent the flu, there are other things we can all do every day to prevent getting or spreading the flu:

For more information or to download the vaccine consent form ahead of time, go to www.gachd.org/glynnflu.

 


Hurricane season is June 1 through November 30 but the Hurricane Registry for those with functional, access, or medical needs is open all year long. The Hurricane Registry for those with functional, access, or medical needs is a list maintained by the health department of residents who may need transportation or medical assistance and have no resources such as family members, neighbors, or friends to help them evacuate if a hurricane is threatening. Residents must apply to be on the Registry. Residents who meet criteria and get on the Registry will be evacuated when there is serious threat of a hurricane.

It is important to note that Registry applications will stop being accepted 72 hours prior to the arrival of tropical storm force winds.

To apply, residents can call toll-free, 1-833-CHD-REGISTER (1-833-243-7344) and follow the phone prompts.

Protected Health Information Authorization

When both the Hurricane Registry Registration and Consent form and the Protected Health Information authorization forms have been completed, please take them to your health department, mail, or fax them to:
Glynn Co. Environmental Health
Attn: Adam Sanchez
2747 Fourth Street
Brunswick, GA 31520

FAX: 912-279-3349

Those with functional or access needs – including children or adults with physical, sensory, or intellectual disabilities who need assistance with the activities of daily living including eating, taking medication, dressing, bathing, communicating, transferring from bed to chair and chair to bed, and toileting – will be evacuated to a gymnasium type setting far enough inland so that they are safe from the storm. The accommodations at the shelter will be basic (a cot with 20-40 square feet of space, bathroom facilities, meals, etc.) and the shelter may be several hours away.

Those with medical needs – including those who need the help of trained medical professionals for things like IV medication or who may be dependent on a respirator or other medical equipment – may be taken to a healthcare facility which will likely be located several hours inland.

Anyone who lives in a nursing home, assisted living, or personal care facility is not eligible for the registry and must follow their facility’s emergency plan. The Registry is truly a last resort but it is important that local emergency management agency and public health department officials have a list of residents who have certain needs and no other way to evacuate should that become necessary.
