IMMUNIZATIONS

Need a copy of your child's immunization record? Click Here. Must have name, date of birth, and a Social Security or Medicaid number.

To better serve our clients, effective April 1, 2014 all immunizations for infants, children and adults will be by appointment only. SDHD will no longer offer walk-in children's immunization clinics. This transition will reduce wait
times for individuals and families and allow for more personal services. To schedule an appointment, call 712-279-6119 and ask for the clinic.

All clinics held at SDHD, 1014 Nebraska St.

There is a $10.00 administration fee per child for all non-Iowa Medicaid children receiving vaccinations through our immunization clinics.  We accept cash, check, credit or debit cards for payment at this time. In addition, we are unable to accept children with Hawk-I coverage.  These children should be taken to their physician for immunizations.

Has Your Home Been Tested?

 

Do you know if your home has elevated levels of radon?  Radon is an odorless, colorless, tasteless gas that causes no immediate health symptoms, but long-term exposure is the second leading cause of lung cancer. The average indoor radon concentration in Iowa is more than six times the national average.

 

Radon is a breakdown product of uranium found in soil, rocks, and water. Radon gas seeps into a house from the soil around and under the home; through cracks in the foundation, floor or walls; through hollow-block walls; and through openings around floor drains, pipes and sump pumps. Radon has been detected in new homes and in old homes, and in homes with or without basements.

 

Test kits are simple to use and inexpensive. Siouxland District Health Department, 1014 Nebraska St, is offering radon test kits for $5 each to walk-ins.  Kits can also be purchased in most hardware stores or by calling the Iowa Radon Hotline at 800-383–5992.

 

Information about reducing radon hazards in your home as well as a listing of licensed measurement and mitigation specialists can be found at www.idph.state.ia.us/Radon/
