Tuberculosis (TB) Control

The Grafton-Taylor County Health Department works with the Bureau of Public Health to prevent the spread of tuberculosis. 

The TB program provides treatment and monitoring of all active TB cases in the area and follow-up testing for the people they were in contact with. The program also provides chest X-rays and treatment for active TB cases.

TB skin tests and T-spot blood tests are available on immunization clinic days and by appointment. 

Influenza

Also known at the flu, is a respiratory illness that is typically spread from person to person. The flu is extremely contagious and causes a variety of symptoms that can range from mild to severe. Symptoms of the flu can include: coughing, fever, headache, sore throat, extreme drowsiness, and muscle aches. To prevent the spread of the flu, the Grafton-Taylor County Health Department offers seasonal flu vaccinations beginning in September and ending around January when the flu season concludes.
