Welcome to ZMCHD

Thank You & Our Partners!

We would like to thank you and your organization for partnering with us to conduct the Flu Clinic October 8th at the Muskingum County Fairgrounds. We are very grateful to you for taking the time to work with us to protect the adults and children in our community from seasonal influenza. The Flu Clinic gave all of us an opportunity to work together and exercise our emergency response plans and abilities. The Health Department has benefited greatly from this collaborative effort and we hope you have, too.
