In light of new cases of measles being reported in Michigan, Ohio, and Indiana, the Branch-Hillsdale-St. Joseph Community Health Agency (BHSJCHA) is urging St. Joseph, Hillsdale, and Branch County residents to get vaccinated.
The Branch Hillsdale St. Joseph Community Health Agency (BHSJ CHA) was recognized by the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services with a 2023 Director’s Award to Local Public Health. The agency was one of three departments to receive honors at the annual Michigan Premier Public Health Conference held October 2-4.
Governor Gretchen Whitmer declared a state of emergency Tuesday for Branch, Hillsdale and St. Joseph counties to address the impacts of severe thunderstorms and straight-line winds on August 11 and 12.
Southwest Michigan has officially administered more vaccinations than its number of COVID-19 cases, a trend in line with the rest of the United States.
