CDC provided an update to the COVID-19 vaccine recommendations this week. Here are the highlights:
• The interval between completing the primary series (dose 1 & 2) and booster dose has been shortened to 5 months for Pfizer recipients.
• Children ages 5-11 that are moderately or severely immunocompromised should receive an additional primary dose 28 days after their second shot. Pfizer is the only vaccine available for this age group at this time.

Remote Sensing Could Predict Well Water Quality After Floods - Eos

Want to learn more about your private well? Call us at 515-961-1074 to see if we have any records for your well. Here is a great article about well water quality after floods and new research being conducted - https://eos.org/articles/remote-sensing-could-predict-well-water-quality-after-floods?mc_cid=e0a4704f8b&mc_eid=904da06ced

After a flood, most people rely on officials to test public water sources. Private well owners are on their own, with little data to guide testing and treatment. New research seeks to change that.

Getting kids ages 5 and up vaccinated against #COVID19 is important to protect their health, but it’s also vital to the health of others in our community like teachers, coaches, ministers, youth mentors, and others. Vaccinated kids also provide an extra layer of protection to older adults like grandparents, great aunts and uncles, and family friends. If you are still on the fence about whether or vaccinations is right for your child we encourage you to learn more on the CDC’s page https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/vaccines/recommendations/adolescents.html and/or talk to your child’s pediatrician.

The Iowa Department of Public Health, Warren County Health Services, and I-Smile Dental Home Initiative helped Carlisle start off this year as #TheNaturalChoice. They awarded the Carlisle Water Department with the Water Fluoridation Quality Award for 2020 in recognition of our continued commitment to public health through water fluoridation and outstanding performance as a public water system. The addition of fluoride to the water treatment process helps to prevent tooth decay, especially for young children. While not required, The Carlisle Water Department chooses to add fluoride to the treatment process to protect the dental health of its consumers. The Water Department is proud of this accomplishment and for being able to provide a high quality product to all of our customers.
