Healthy People 2030 Champions
Clay County Public Health Center is excited to work with the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Office of Disease Prevention and Health Promotion (ODPHP) and join the Healthy People 2030 Champion Program.
Healthy People 2030 Champions are public and private organizations that support the Healthy People 2030 vision. They’re committed to working toward Healthy People’s overarching goals and objectives, and they help improve health and well-being at the local, state, or tribal level. ODPHP recognizes and supports Champions — with information, tools, and resources — as we work to promote Healthy People 2030.
Together, we can work to eliminate health disparities and improve the health and well-being of all people!
School Immunization Clinics Announced for Fall 2023
The Clay County Public Health Center immunizations team will once again offer clinics in local middle and high schools this fall. These clinics are a great way for kids to stay up-to-date with required and recommended vaccinations, without needing to be pulled out of school.
An added bonus - no administration fees! This means that students without insurance coverage can get caught up at no cost. It also reduces costs for students covered by insurance (CCPHC accepts most major insurance plans, including Medicaid).
The following schools will have clinics in September. Please visit our website for the full schedule for Fall 2023.
- Sept. 19: Winnetonka High School
- Sept. 21: New Mark Middle School
- Sept. 28: Excelsior Springs Middle School & Excelsior Springs High School
- Breastfeeding Peer Counselor
- Healthy Policy Analyst
