Benefits to Accreditation

Project DAWN

The Meigs County Health Department has launched Project DAWN, which is a program that trains residents to administer naloxone (Narcan) nasally in the case of a suspected opioid overdose.  Trained individuals receive a Project DAWN kit that contains not only the medication, but also the supplies to offer other lifesaving measures, such as breathing masks for rescue breathing. We currently have 38 kits in stock, and those kits are FREE to community members who have an interest and are willing to come to the Health Department to be trained to use them. Training takes less than one hour and can be done on an individual basis or as a group. Please call Sherry Hayman, RN, at 740-992-6626 Ext. 1036 to set up an appointment.


Flu Vaccination Clinic


The Meigs County Health Department will be having a FLU SHOT CLINIC at EASTERN HIGH SCHOOL on Saturday, October 10, 2015, from 8 AM to 12 PM. Flu shots are available for all ages at that clinic; however, please go to, and check to see if VaxCare, the company from which we obtain our vaccines, can accept your commercial insurance, Medicaid company or ...Medicare. You may also call us at 740-992-6626 to check for coverage. Private pay will also be accepted as follows: Flu Shot 6 – 36 months $31.00; Flu Shot 36 months and up $30.00; FluMist (nasal spray, live vaccine) 36 months and up $31; High Dose 65 years+ $43.00.

The Ohio Department of Health (ODH) Vaccines for Children (VFC) Program is also supplying a limited number of vaccines for infants and children through age 18 who qualify. Additionally, ODH is providing a limited number of adult Flu Vaccine to those who qualify.

Vaccine Insurance Concerns

The Meigs County Health Department uses Vaxcare to supply vaccines for adults and children aged birth through 18 who have commercial insurance coverage. We cannot currently afford to purchase vaccine that is not supplied by the Ohio Department of Health (which is only for children aged birth through 18 years with Medicaid and who meet various other criteria determined by the federal/state government).

 Please reference the list of commercial insurance and managed Medicaid companies accepted by Vaxcare. Call 992-6626 to further determine eligibility.
