  • Did you know that if your 12 and up kids are vaccinated they do not have to quarantine this fall if they are exposed at school?

  • The vaccine bus will be in our region later this month. No appointment is necessary and walk-ups are welcome! If you want a particular vaccine, an appointment is encouraged so that the staff have enough of the vaccine that you prefer.
