Please be patient as we anticipate longer than usual lines as a result of the recent closure. You may be standing for a long period of time, as we give the best possible service to each and every citizen.
Follow the State of Washington guidelines for protecting yourself and others from transmission of illness. If you are sick, or have any signs or symptoms of illness, please consider delaying your visit, and conduct your business when you are healthy. Hand sanitizer will be available at all entrances for your use upon entry and exit from the buildings. All customers will be required to stand 6 feet apart, and only those persons necessary to complete a transaction should be inside the building. As always, the majority of services we offer can be completed online, through the US Mail, or by telephone.

Flu vaccine (flu shot) is now becoming available across the state for everyone aged 6 months and older, including pregnant women. Similar to last year, the nasal spray vaccine is not recommended for use by anyone of any age due to concerns over its effectiveness at preventing illness over the past few seasons.
Annual flu vaccination is the best method of prevention against illness, followed by covering your cough/proper hand washing and staying home from school or work when you are sick. The flu shot takes up to two weeks to provide full protection and is now available at pharmacies and clinic locations throughout the state.
All children in Washington receive vaccines at no cost through age 18. The provider may charge a fee to give the vaccine, called an administration fee. You can ask for this fee to be waived if you cannot afford it.
Our local providers are teaming up to KNOCK out the flu by offering flu shot clinics. Please support your local providers and keep your families and communities protected.
Thank you for your interest in employment with Lincoln County Health Department (LCHD). We do not have any current open positions at this time, but please feel free to check back.
