The Harper County Health Department has received seasonal influenza vaccine and has begun giving shots in the local community. Seasonal influenza and pneumonia shots will be available at the offices in Anthony, Harper, and Attica for the general public during the normal business hours those offices are open. Please remember to bring in all health insurance cards at the time of your visit so that we may make a copy of the cards and bill your insurance. We do recommend calling ahead of time for an appointment to make sure we have the type of vaccine you desire and a nurse available when you arrive.
The Anthony office is located at 123 N. Jennings, Anthony, Kansas and is open from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Monday through Friday.
The Harper office is located at the Harper Senior Center, 821 Central Avenue, Harper, Kansas and is open from 9:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. on Wednesday mornings.
The Attica office is located at the Attica Rural Health Clinic, 302 N. Botkin Street, Attica, Kansas and is open on the first and third Tuesdays of the month from 9:30 a.m. to 11:00 a.m.
We also provide flu shots at different locations in the community by request such as nursing facilities, meal sites and businesses. If you would like our staff to set up a clinic at your place of business please contact us at 620-842-5132.
We encourage everyone to remember the importance of good personal hygiene in the prevention of infection:
- Washing hands thoroughly and frequently with soap and warm water
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth
- Avoiding close contact with people who are sick; keep your distance from others when you are sick
- Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when coughing or sneezing
- Stay home when you are sick
- Seek medical attention when you develop symptoms of the flu
Following these basic tips can help you and those around you stay healthy year-round. We are willing to provide outreach clinics and schedule presentations on hand washing and infection control to agencies in the Harper County community. Please contact our office at 620-842-5132 or check our website for additional information regarding hand washing, influenza or other health topics.
