The Shelby County Health Department is in full swing during back to school time, making sure local children have all of the necessary vaccines to make sure they stay as healthy as possible as they head back classes. They also offer affordable services, should someone come in who is either uninsured, or has a high deductible.
Steve Melega is the Public Health Administrator with the Shelby County Health Department, and knows kids sometimes have an aversion to visit the doctors, however the Health Department tries to make it as enjoyable an experience as possible.
The Shelby County Health Department also offers affordable options for some vaccines should you be uninsured, or face a high deductible with your insurance.
Melega appeared as a guest on the Newstalk WTIM Morning Show live from our downtown Shelbyville Studios.
