Giving out both adult and pediatric vaccines, the health department says that they administered fourteen vaccines to kids on the 23rd, and a good amount of adult booster shots as well.

The Doniphan County Health Department says getting your kids vaccinated before the holidays is a good way to protect them from the virus this holiday season, while also protecting other family members they may be in contact with.

“You do it for yourself and for your child’s health, but you also do it for the grandparents and those that they’re around. It helps with preventing school outbreaks, so we’re hoping everyone will realize the importance of this vaccine and actually getting it into the arms of their children,” said Sheryl Pierce, Administrator for the Doniphan County Health Department.

Doniphan County Health Department is holding its next vaccine clinic for children and adults December 2nd, 14th, and 23rd, all lasting from 3-6pm on those days.

It was a pleasant start to the weekend with sunny skies and temperatures reaching the mid 60s. A cold front moving through the area will bring us down into the 30s for lows overnight with gusty winds up to 20 mph. This will keep our highs in the 50s on Sunday under mostly sunny skies with mild winds from the southwest. Temperatures will quickly start to warm up again on Monday with highs in the mid 60s. Rain chances look to stay minimal into next week. Temperatures are forecasted to stay above average for the first day of December on Wednesday.
