Logan County District Board of Health members learned at their Wednesday afternoon meeting about a donation from a local organization that will provide for added immunity for area residents against several illnesses, including pertussis.

The Bellefontaine Kiwanis Club has donated $1,000 to the Logan County Health District to provide additional vaccinations for vulnerable populations.

The funds have been earmarked for the Tdap vaccine after the county has seen an influx in pertussis cases this year, said Kay Schroer, nursing director. A total of 16 suspected cases have been reported so far in 2013.

“We’re so appreciative to the Kiwanis Club for their donation,” Mrs. Schroer said. “This is a wonderful way that they are helping us reach out into the community.”
