Public Health is able to offer free or low-cost childhood immunizations to children 0-18 through the MNVFC (Minnesota Vaccine for Children) program. If child has NO insurance, has Medical Assistance (Blue Plus, UCARE), or insurance does not cover the cost of vaccinations, we can help!
Public Health Nurses follow up with residents who have either been exposed to TB or have active Tuberculosis. Nurses provide education about TB. They can also facilitate residents getting medications to treat the TB. The nurse assistance and the medications are provided at no charge.
Faribault & Martin County Public Health has a dedicated team that is equipped to mitigate against, prepare for, respond to, and recover from manmade and natural emergencies. We collaborate with other public and private agencies to plan, train, exercise and coordinate resources to ensure the public health of our community.
Our Collaborators include the South Central Healthcare Coalition and the Minnesota Department of Health.
