The San Juan County
Public Health Service has the capability to provide immunizations and
assistance in the unlikely event of a disease outbreak or bio-terrorist
attack in our area. However, a situation like this would require a
multi-stage response. Specifically, if vaccines were required, SJCPHS
would schedule each and every resident for an injection within a very
short period of time.
case of a disease outbreak, SJCPHS has detailed protocols for organizing
a response of medical professionals and volunteers. If you have
questions about public health emergency planning in San Juan County,
please contact Nina Foster, Emergency Preparedness and Response
Coordinator at SJCPHS.
The public health
service has included Biological Agent Fact Sheets that will provide our
residents, businesses, emergency partners, and the media with clear and
concise information about those agents that could be a threat to our
community. These threats are not only man-made, but natural as well.
