The Webster County Health Department would like to invite you to join us on our 6 week walking challenge. To participate, you must pledge to walk 30 minutes a ...day/5 days a week. The challenge will begin on Monday, April 3 and will last for 6 weeks. We have many signed up to participate from Webster County but would like to invite others in other counties and states to join us. You can walk 30 minutes all at once, 15 minutes twice a day or even 10 minutes 3 times a day. You can walk with our group or even walk in your own back yard. We are eager to see how many of you from other areas are interested in joining up from where ever you live. If interested, please post below or call the Webster County Health Department at 304-847-5483 and let us know where you'll be participating from. Please share with your friends and lets see how many counties and states that we can get participation from. The walk this year is in honor of Elaine Hamilton, who recently passed away from cancer. Elaine has participated in each yearly walk with her husband Wally since "Walking Webster County" first started in 2014. So lets walk for Elaine - or maybe you have someone else you'd like to walk for. If so, let us know when you call to sign up. Let's join together and improve our health over the next six weeks! We will kick off this six week event by meeting on Baker's Island on Monday, April 3 at 12:00 noon. Please join us if you can on the Island - or join us by walking wherever you are at the same time! Remember - call the Webster County Health Dept. at 304-847-5483 to record your steps! This Event is made possible through a grant from the Snowshoe Foundation. Please share!

Think its too late to get the Flu Vaccine now? Not so. According to the Food and Drug Administrations (FDA), vaccinations can be protective as long as flu viruses are circulating, and although seasonal flu outbreaks can happen as early as October, flu activity usually peaks in January or February and can last well into May.
Webster County Health Department has flu shots still available. Call today to get your flu shot (304)847-5483.
