The role of a local health department is to protect and promote the public's health. Although a daily factor in all our lives, public health is one of the least visible and least understood of all public functions. In a nutshell, public health provides all those services needed to protect and promote health that cannot be readily performed in the private sector or by health care providers. Public health is not health care. Often misunderstood as a service for the poor or for only certain segments of the community, public health serves everyone. Unlike health care, if we do our job perfectly, you’ll never know we were there!
During a normal workday, the Health Department conducts inspections of restaurants, pools, and other facilities to ensure proper sanitation, and investigates public health nuisance complaints such as trash or rodents. It also issues birth, death and marriage/civil union certificates, marriage/civil union licenses and retail food and pet licenses, provides health clinics for children, and health promotion programs for all ages. We are program administrators, nurses, health educators, inspectors, registrars, support staff, students, volunteers, and other dedicated individuals with a common goal -- to deliver effective and innovative programs and services that ensure the health and well-being of the Englewood community. The Health Department includes an administrative division and program divisions in Environmental Health, Health Education, Public Health Nursing, and Vital Statistics & Licensing. We look forward to seeing you and working with you.
For additional information, please contact the Director/Health Officer, James Fedorko, at 201-871-6501.
August 11, 2022 Press Release – CDC streamlines COVID-19 guidance to help the public better protect themselves and understand their risk
Flu vaccine appointments are available with our Public Health Nurse, Claudette Murdock. Call 201-568-3450 x511 to schedule. Special flu vaccine events will be announced through flyers and robocalls.
MPX is a rare disease caused by infection with monkey pox virus that can affect anyone. The virus can cause flu-like symptoms, swollen lymph nodes, and a rash that often begins on the face and spreads to other parts of the body. MPX does not spread easily to people without close contact. At this time, cases of monkey pox are relatively rare in the United States. People who think they may have been exposed to monkey pox or who have symptoms of monkeypox should consult with a healthcare provider. (NJDOH)
The New Jersey Department of Health is working in conjunction with CDC and local health departments, to quickly identify monkeypox cases and close contacts, provide treatment and vaccine, and further prevent the spread of disease. CDC is working with state and local health officials to monitor probable and confirmed cases within the country.
