The Butler County Health Department continually strives for improved quality of life for all individuals in Butler County by promoting health, preventing disease and injury, and supporting a safe, clean environment.
Public Health Nursing Department
Through partnerships and collaborations, the Public Health Nursing Department provides services to the entire community to promote health and prevent disease. They are specialists in vaccines for the prevention of communicable diseases for both children and adults. They participate in the Vaccines for Children program that allows us to provide childhood vaccines at very low cost. They offer international travel vaccines for anyone planning an overseas trip. Arrangements can be made to provide certain vaccines on site if needed (at schools, churches, public vaccine clinics). Nurses also coordinate programs in Butler County for the State of Ohio on lead measurement in children, tuberculosis tracking, the Perinatal Hepatitis B Prevention Program, and disease outbreak investigations.
