Free Tetanus Shots for Flood Victims in Hancock, Pearl River and Greene Counties
In response to recent flooding across the state, the Mississippi Department of Health is offering free tetanus shots in counties affected by the onslaught of water.
They want to remind all residents recently affected by flooding that a tetanus vaccination is recommended if it has been 10 years or more since your last shot. Residents and first responders involved in storm clean-up are at greater risk of injury and possible infection.
Here in South Mississippi, if you were affected by flooding and need a tetanus shot, you can stop by any health department office in Hancock, Greene or Pearl River counties to get a free shot.
