2020-2021 Flu Season:

Flu vaccination is crucial this year because of the concurrent COVID-19 pandemic. Although a flu vaccine does not protect you against the virus that causes COVID-19, it can help to reduce the overall prevalence of respiratory illness in your community, according to the CDC. In turn, this helps keep those in vulnerable populations protected and reduces the patient load seen by healthcare providers, preventing the healthcare system from becoming overwhelmed. PHHS began offering school-based flu clinics on Sept. 22. Parents with any questions about their school’s participation are encouraged to contact their school nurse. Community-based clinics will begin September 30. A full list can be found below. Curbside flu shots will also be available at PHHS by appointment only. Please call 573.874.7355 to schedule.

    • Walk-in environmental health, clinic and WIC services will be eliminated. Appointments will be required so that social distancing is maintained and to increase staff capacity for COVID-19 response.

    • Please be mindful of keeping a safe 6′ physical distance, for the protection of the visitors and the staff.

    • On a short-term basis, the following services will not be offered: food handler classes, lab testing, WIC classes, smoking cessation, blood pressure/blood sugar screening, lead testing, and in-person home visiting.

    • All visitors will be screened upon entering for illness and travel history.

    • Enhanced building cleaning and disinfection occurs on a continuous basis.

    • Waiting areas have been rearranged to allow for social distancing.

  • Starting 4/6/20, in an effort to protect our patients, residents, staff and community during this COVID-19 pandemic, we will be making some changes to the way we deliver clinical services here at Columbia/Boone County Public Health and Human Services. We will be postponing some services when appropriate and offering some of our clinical services remotely.For services that are needed now, we will be doing a phone or video visit first and then arranging for in-person services if that is needed after the phone or video visit. All in-person visits must be scheduled. We will not be able to see patients on a walk-in basis during this time. This process is subject to change if needed. We genuinely want to provide any urgently needed services and are doing everything we can to balance that with the desire to stop the spread of COVID-19.

    Please call 573.874.7249 if you are in need of our clinical services during this time.
