Even though rates of mental illness among minority populations are similar to those among white populations, access to care is very different. People of color are more likely to receive lower quality care than others. This comes from a lack of cultural competence among mental health practitioners, a lack of providers in minority populated areas and greater stigma within their own communities. #NotAlone

Today is World Population Day! This year we are working towards putting the breaks on COVID-19 and safeguarding the health and rights of women and girls now! For every 3 months that lockdowns continue, up to 2 million additional women may be unable to use contraception.

For every 6 months that the lockdown continues, 47 million women will have limited to no contraception use resulting in almost 7 million unintended pregnancies.

On this World Population Day, let us act to safeguard sexual and reproductive health care, protect the health and rights of women and girls, and end gender-based violence. The pandemic has made our jobs much harder, but we must prevail.

July is Cord Blood Awareness Month. Cord blood is full of white blood cells and stem cells that continue to enter the baby even after its born. For full term babies, delaying cord clamping has an immediate benefit of increasing the baby’s iron levels and benefits can last for about 6 months.

Delayed cord clamping is starting to become the normal practice for babies who are born with no complications. Delaying cord clamping is suggested from anywhere from 30 seconds to up to 5 minutes.

July is recognized as Bebe Moore Campbell National Minority Mental Health Month. Mental illness does not discriminate against any race, gender or background, but some groups may find it harder to access care for mental illness. One of the biggest factors to people receiving care for mental illness is the stigma that cultures attach to it. Even in the US, mental illness is considered something that people can “just get over if they try hard enough”. This is not true now and never has been. Mental illness needs medical care the same as physical illness does. We must work within our communities to reduce the stigma and help our neighbors, friends and family to seek help when they need it. #NotAlone

Fatherhood

There are many programs available for maternal child health, but not for fatherhood, even though fathers want to be present. This is why in 2019, the Healthy Start program began requiring grantees to start offering services to fathers as well. The Genesee Healthy Start Fatherhood Program has been in the community and ready to serve the fathers connected to our Healthy Start moms and children. We work with our dads to help them overcome the obstacles that affect their ability to be present and engaged in their children’s lives.

Will you please state the priorities for getting vaccine, are they the same as State guidelines. Called last week to clarify whether the Monday 5-6 appointment or registration was the priority list for over 65, was told registration. Web site indicates you can still make appointment on Monday 5-6, Why if people are on list and you have appointments available, first people registered should get them, regardless of Race or where they live in county. Other counties are doing much better then GCHD. I have been registered for a week, will these other groups be put ahead of me.

Just saw something disturbing on Genesee County Health Department, web site Genesee County is prioritizing Phase 1B as follows: Those aged 80 years or older, and Individuals in groups hit the hardest by COVID-19: African Americans, Hispanics, and Flint residents What happened to over 65???? Is it a local thing, because I can't find it in the Michigan site. Legal?? What about the rest of the county? MICHIGAN.GOV www.michigan.gov
The Genesee County Health Department, hasn't posted an update lately, Is the Health Dept using strictly the new sign up register or are they still going to have that Monday 5-6 appointment, which isn't working. Please update on procedures, I understand the shortage here in Michigan, Comment Genesee County get 3000 does, First 3000 that registered are called, post the list!!!
Today I received the Covid-19 Vaccine, Moderna. The experience has been amazing. I was greeted by the Sheriff, paper work verified by the GCHD, given the shot by a registered nurse along with being greeted by the National guard. Then checked on and released after 15 minutes by the EMT. This whole process ran smooth. I’m thankful for the scientists and doctors who made this record-breaking vaccine possible. A big thank you to the Genesee County Health Department and the health care workers who are administering the vaccine standing out in the cold making the process effortless. #Covid19Vaccination 🙏🏽 #1Down1ToGo 💉 #Educator 🍎
The Genesee County Health Department needs to clarify what is going on, some of us called Senior Centers last week and had our name sent to GCHD, are we ahead of people that got an appointment on line after we signed up, Some are still trying to get appointments on line!!!!! We checked the system and it crashed at 5:00, sad system. No one understands what is going on. Need to just register online and have system generate appointments when vaccine is available, get a system from other counties or from a commercial operation (Meijer, Rite Aid, etc) Thank you
I manage to get a time, fill-in my info, and submitted and got this error message.
when I try to log on, this is what I see
Site has crashed!!! What a joke for vaccine distribution!
High praise to our Genesee County Health Department and the Gensee County Sheriff Department. I received my vaccination at the Perry Center this morning. Major organization! My appointment was at 8:10AM. I arrived a few minutes early since I didn't know whether to enter off Perry Rd or S.Saginaw St. It ended up being Perry Rd. There was a GESH cruiser there directing traffic. There were maybe 10 cars ahead of me. The line began to move PROMPTLY at 8:00AM. They had 10 nurses on duty as well as some county paramedics and one Regional Ambulance, as a precaution. I received my Pfizer vaccine at 8:10AM. No side effects felt. Traffic is directed to the south side of the building to wait out your 15 mins and then you exit out onto S. Saginaw. I was on my way home at 8:34AM. I go back for my second shot 3 weeks from today, same time, same place. Hats off to every single person involved in this roll out at the Perry Center. Proud day for Genesee County! Many thanks for all the hard work that has been done, is being done and will continue to get done! 👏👏👏👏👏👏👏⭐
I am trying to register, I am 77 years old with COPD. can not find how to register.
I have commented on this site's a couple times, I saw that you added a couple of sites, The only way to do this safely is "Drive through" Most older citizens can't stand very long, and lines would spread virus, plus the cold, it's winter in Michigan. Find someplace to drive in and out, better for health care workers and everyone.
