State and Local Public Health Resources

One of the most crucial components of any public health campaign is communicating time-sensitive information to people in areas affected by public health threats. Since most public health concerns are local or regional in nature, the responsibility for getting information out to the public in a timely manner falls to state and municipal health departments.

From consumer product recalls and food safety warnings, to the latest information on infectious disease outbreaks and vaccinations, state and local health department websites serve as the best resources available for getting the information you need to keep you and your family out of harm’s way.

Whether you’re a healthcare professional looking to isolate the source of a food borne illness or a concerned parent looking to keep your child’s vaccinations current, your state and local health departments will provide you with the latest information on how to keep your family and your community healthy and safe.
