Mosquito Bite Protection

Full Story

Mosquito Bite Protection in Florida information sheet

On February, 3, State Surgeon General and Secretary of Health Dr. John Armstrong issued a Declaration of Public Health Emergency regarding the Zika virus. There are simple steps we can all take to protect ourselves from Zika and all mosquito-borne illness: Drain standing water, no matter how seemingly small, cover your skin with mosquito repellent and protective clothing.

The Florida Department of Health in Highlands County encourages all residents and visitors to fight the flu by getting a seasonal flu shot. It's the best way to protect yourself and those around you from getting sick, which results in time lost from work and school.

Flu vaccine is available at the health department. Please call 863-386-6040 for more information or to make an appointment.
