Welcome to our website!
McHenry County residents are touched every day by our services. Every time we eat in a restaurant, register our pets, build a well or septic system, need help for health care, or get our children vaccinated for school, the Health Department is involved to make us safer and healthier.
- TB control
- Chronic and Communicable disease control
- Hearing and vision screening for children
- STD/HIV testing and counseling
Vaccines are safe, effective, and save Lives. Find information here for parents and adults, as well as information and answers for those who aren’t sure about vaccinating.
