IMMUNIZATIONS

Need a copy of your child's immunization record? Click Here. Must have name, date of birth, and a Social Security or Medicaid number.

To better serve our clients, effective April 1, 2014 all immunizations for infants, children and adults will be by appointment only. SDHD will no longer offer walk-in children's immunization clinics. This transition will reduce wait
times for individuals and families and allow for more personal services. To schedule an appointment, call 712-279-6119 and ask for the clinic.

Immunization eligibility information for Vaccine for Children's (VFC) program in English and Spanish

All clinics held at SDHD, 1014 Nebraska St.

There is a $10.00 administration fee per child for all non-Iowa Medicaid children receiving vaccinations through our immunization clinics.  We accept cash, check, credit or debit cards for payment at this time. In addition, we are unable to accept children with Hawk-I coverage.  These children should be taken to their physician for immunizations.

Community Transformation Grant

 

What is the Community Transformation Grant (CTG)?

The Community Transformation Grant (CTG) is a program of the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The grant's purpose is to prevent leading causes of death and disability through 4 strategic directions, changes in the community, and growing the health care system.

Over the next five years, 26 counties in Iowa, including Woodbury County, will work on Iowa's Community Transformation Grant. We will focus on four main areas, also known as strategic directions. These areas include: Tobacco Free Living, Active Living & Health Eating, Clinical Preventive Services, and Safe & Healthy Environments.

 

The Power of Communities

The Community Transformation Grant (CTG) reminds us that it all starts in a community. Communities shape people and influence all areas of their life, including their health. The CTG creates links between the individual, their community, and the state of Iowa. When an individual has the option and makes the healthy choice, it not only improves their health, but their choices also effect the entire community.

How can I get involved?

  • Check out your neighborhood: Are sidewalks and streets safe and in good condition for walking and biking?; Is there healthy food available throughout the community and in public places?; Are apartment buildings voluntarily smoke free?; Do the worksites promote wellness and activity?; Is there an uneven amount of sugar-sweetened beverages in your public places?

 

  • Join our local wellness coalition.  Currently meets the first Thursday of the month at Siouxland District Health Department from 3:00 - 4:00 P.M.

 

  • Encourage your employer to start promoting healthy eating and physical activity in your work place and participate in our local Worksite Wellness Coalition. Currently meets the third Wednesday or the Month at Siouxland District Health Department from 8:00 A.M.  - 9:00 A.M. Learn more about worksite by vising the Worksite Wellness Coordinating Council webpage at www.LiveHealthySiouxland.org.

 

  • Tell your friends, neighbors, and family how important community is for health.

 

  • Make healthy choices and encourage others to join you.
