The McDonough County Health Department conducted an immunization clinic at West Prairie Middle School yesterday evening. Many people came and the people who met the health department's criteria for eligibility received their vaccine. I believe the health department is planning to return to the middle school for a second clinic on December 5. That is a Saturday. When we receive information about their plans, I'll post it here.
Our attendance is improving each day as our sick children return to good health and to school. Please continue to keep children with fever home until the fever has been gone for 24 hours without the use of Tylenol or other fever-reducing drugs.
