Public Health Department
The County Health Department's mission is to promote good health practices, keep the environment clean, healthy and safe, and to help people enjoy good health and use resources effectively.
Jefferson County residents: Due to wildfire smoke and its impact on air quality, please go to the DPHHS page linked below for current recommendations to protect your health. While there are no air quality monitoring stations in Jefferson County, visibility index may be used as a guide to determine the health category of your air. For example, if you can see 13+ miles away- the air is considered "Good"; if you can see 2-5 miles away- the air is considered "Unhealthy". See this link for DPHHS recommendations and further links to DEQ’s page for regional air quality conditions.
The County Health Department offers vaccinations on a sliding fee scale basis. Below are the reccomended vaccinations by age. Information on the sliding fee scale is available here.
WIC (Women, Infants and Children)
WIC is the special supplemental Nutrition Program from the USDA for Women, Infants and Children. It provides valuable nutrition and health information to its participants. WIC helps families learn how to make healthy lifelong nutrition and lifestyle choices. Women who are pregnant, breastfeeding or just had a baby are eligible, as well as children ages 0-4 years of age.
Studies show pregnant women participating in WIC seek earlier prenatal care. Early prenatal care contributes to having healthier pregnancies and delivering healthier babies. WIC's supplemental foods add key nutrients such as protein, Vitamins A and C, iron and calcium to their diets. Children on WIC show improved iron levels (less anemia), have better vocabularies, have improved access to regular health care and have increased immunization rates when compared to other eligible children not on WIC
Participation in WIC is separate from all other programs. You do not have to participate in other programs to take advantage of WIC's many services. Being on WIC does not affect your participation in other programs. See the State WIC Program website for more details. http://dphhs.mt.gov/publichealth/WIC
