The responsibility of our local health department is to promote health services and prevent disease. We focus on improving the health status of the population, as opposed to primary care providers who respond to treatment of individuals. To accomplish this mission, we concentrate on three core government public health functions; assessment, policy development and assurance.

Immunizations

Immunizations are essential in disease prevention. Vaccines were developed and made available to help control the spread of infectious diseases that were once devastating for the citizens of this country. Vaccines are safe and effective against many diseases including polio, hepatitis, meningitis, measles, pertussis (whooping cough), mumps and many others.

INFLUENZA

West Nile virus (WNV) is the leading cause of mosquito-borne disease in the continental United States.  It is most commonly spread to people by the bite of an infected mosquito. Cases of WNV occur during mosquito season, which starts in the summer and continues through fall. There are no vaccines to prevent or medications to treat WNV in people. Fortunately, most people infected with WNV do not feel sick. About 1 in 5 people who are infected develop a fever and other symptoms. About 1 out of 150 infected people develop a serious, sometimes fatal, illness.

LBPHD’s Emergency Preparedness Program is intended to  play a key role in preparing our communities for disasters, responding to disasters/emergencies, and lending support though the recovery process.  A public health emergency can be anything from a pandemic/disease outbreak, to a terrorist act, or a natural disaster like a flood, wildfire, or tornado.

 

LBPHD works with local government, emergency management, hospitals, nursing facilities and other community partners throughout our 9 county district to plan/prepare  so we can successfully respond to all types of disasters throughout our district.
