Imagine that scientists had told us that someone had invented a WONDER PRODUCT!

Let me tell you about this product! This wonder product is available to every baby born on earth. It's exactly the perfect nutrition for all infants and even has added antibodies so your baby is less likely to get sick. What's more - WONDER PRODUCT is available everywqhere you go, requires no storage or delivery! You don't even have to leave your house to get it (so imagine the gas you would save).

WONDER PRODUCT can reduce your chances of getting diabetes, of being obses, of getting certain cancers, and it's even been proven to kill cancer cells in a petri-dish. WONDER PRODUCT increases your chance of a higher I.Q., and it has the right amount of fat, carbohydrates and protein for your specific age.

And don't worry - doctors recommend it! We even have approval from many health associations!

Are you someone who is couscious about the environment? Do you check out the labels on your products to see what's in them? No need to worry! Wonder Product is completely organic - it's green and environmentally friendly! There is no waste!! And you will never have to worrry about WONDER PRODUCT being recalled.

Anbd the best part of all is it is FREE! This amazing product is human breast milk! August is Breastfeeding Awareness month and all moms are encouraged to give it a try since it is healthy for mom and baby! If anyone is having a baby and thinking about breastfeeding please call the FCHD at 740-335-5910 and ask to speak to Jeannie Bihl for help, classes, information on pumping or going back to work.

We all need shots (also called vaccinations or immunizations) to help protect us from serious diseases.

Shots can prevent serious diseases like the flu, measles, and pneumonia. It’s important to know which shots you need and when to get them.

Everyone age 6 months and older needs to get a flu vaccine every year. Other shots work best when they are given at certain ages.

The immunization chart for children can be found here.

The catch-up immunization chart for children can be found here.

The immunization chart for adults can be found here.

Talk to your doctor or nurse to make sure that everyone in your family gets the shots they need.
