Cold and flu season is getting underway and the Montgomery County Health Department is ready.
At today's Montgomery County Commission meeting, Brandee Hanna-Kirk told commissioners that several area businesses have held flu clinics to ensure employees wanting flu shots can get them.
Anyone wanting more information can contact the health department at 620-251-4210 in Coffeyville or 620-331-4300 in Independence. The health department also has Covid shot available for those who signed up to be on the waiting list. Hanna-Kirk also said her department responded to a complaint from the Kansas Department of Health and Environment about sanitary conditions in the Caney schools. Hanna-Kirk says she conducted an inspection of both the high school and elementary school and found no issues of concern.
