Parents:

All students entering 7th and 12th grade must have the meningococcal vaccine.

Without it, they cannot start school.

About the Vaccine:

· It is not a new vaccine. It has been recommended for a  decade.                    

· Most parents already choose to vaccinate their children.

· What’s new is that the vaccine will be required for school entry as of Sept. 1, 2016.

About Meningococcal Disease:

· It causes bacterial meningitis and other serious disease.

· Teens and young adults are at greater risk.

· It comes on quickly and without warning.

· Its symptoms are similar to the flu.

· Every case of this disease can result in death or long-term disability.

Check with your doctor. Even teens who have had a shot before may need a booster to start school.

Zika Virus Fact Sheet

 

 

 

 

Allegany County residents may be wondering about the Zika virus you have heard about in the news. The New York State Department of Health (NYSDOH) has launched a Zika virus information line, 1-888-364-4723, which is staffed weekdays from 9am to 6pm for New Yorkers to call and learn more about the virus. If you have traveled to Zika virus affected countries and have symptoms you should contact your health care provider. The most common symptoms of Zika virus are fever, rash, joint pain, or conjunctivitis (red eyes).  See your doctor if you are pregnant and you or your partner has traveled to a country where Zika virus cases have been reported. Be sure to tell your health care provider where you traveled. Visit this website for up to date information about affected counties, Areas with Zika | Zika virus | CDC .

Those who travel to one of these areas should talk to their doctor first and strictly follow steps to avoid mosquito bites during the trip, including:

  • Dressing in long-sleeved shirts and long pants
  • Staying indoors when mosquitoes are most active
  • Using repellant products registered with the US Environmental Protection Agency 
  • Not overusing repellant – only applying as much as needed to provide protection
  • Reading and following label directions before you use any kind of repellant

Spring is around the corner. Allegany County residents should remember to use these tips to protect themselves from mosquito bites.  In addition, Allegany County residents are urged to prevent standing water to decrease our mosquito population in the following ways:

  • Dispose of used tires, tin cans, plastic containers, ceramic pots or similar containers in which water collects.
  • Drill holes in the bottoms of recycling containers that are kept outdoors. Make sure roof gutters drain properly and clean clogged gutters in the spring and fall.
  • Turn over plastic wading pools and wheelbarrows when not in use and change the water in bird baths twice a week.
  • Clean vegetation and debris from the edges of ponds.
  • Clean and chlorinate swimming pools, outdoor saunas and hot tubs, and drain water from pool covers.
