The Shannon County Health Center provides immunizations to infants, children, and adults. Required immunizations are provided to pre-school and school age children who are uninsured or have Medicaid.



Many health care treatments that were once only offered in a hospital or a doctor's office can now be done in your home. Home health care helps you get better, regain your independence, and become as self-sufficient as possible.

May 11, 2023, marked the end of the federal COVID-19 public health emergency declaration.   Shannon County mobilized and sustained a historic response to the COVID-19 pandemic.  We now find ourselves at a different point in the pandemic – with more tools and resources than ever before to better protect ourselves and our communities.
We have now shifted from a pandemic to an endemic phase of the disease, which means that COVID-19 will continue to circulate in our community, just as influenza, strep, and other diseases do.  As the virus mutates and new variants arise, we may see new waves of infections.  However, we cannot predict when and how bad these new waves will be.
This also means that we will transition away from monitoring cases, including contact tracing efforts (except in vulnerable populations), to monitoring disease severity and societal impact.  We will no longer report weekly data, but will alert the community when we become aware of a spike in COVID-19 cases.  Vaccine, testing & therapeutics will continue as long as federal resources persist, but will shift to traditional health care delivery over time.
