Marshall County Health Department works with MyVaxIndiana, an initiative facilitated by the Indiana State Department of Health (ISDH) to maintain the Immunization Information System, CHIRP (Children and Hoosier’s Immunization Registry Program). CHIRP serves as a comprehensive platform for collecting, forecasting, managing, and sharing vaccine data among registered medical providers in Indiana, encompassing private medical facilities, local health departments, hospitals, schools, and pharmacies. Under the Indiana Code 16-38-5, authorized providers and their designees have access to CHIRP data, while individuals can also retrieve their or their dependents' vaccine records directly from CHIRP providers or the ISDH. Visit our website's calendar for information on upcoming vaccine clinics, or contact MCHD for appointments, ensuring personalized and timely immunization and testing services.

Lead Poisoning: Beginning Jan. 1, 2023, House Enrolled Act 1313 requires that all Indiana healthcare providers determine whether children under age 6 have been tested for lead poisoning and to offer the screening. Testing is recommended at a child’s 1- and 2-year check-ups but can be done at any time if a child aged 3-6 hasn’t been previously tested.  Lead testing is available for free on Tuesday and Wednesday by appointment only.  Call 574-935-8565 to schedule.

Information for the Community

  • What is WIC?

    Women, Infants, and Children (WIC) seek to provide nutrition, education, and assessment to pregnant women and new mothers. Good nutrition is essential to good health, and the Indiana WIC Program offers a range of health and nutrition education services for families to help participants put healthy behaviors into action.

  • Who does WIC serve?

    WIC serves income-eligible participants who are at nutritional risk in the following categories

    • Pregnant Women
    • Breastfeeding Women (Up to baby’s 1st birthday)
    • Non-Breastfeeding Postpartum Women (up to 6 months)
    • Infants (up to their 1st birthday)
    • Children (up to their 5th birthday)

    For a complete detailing of income eligibility and documentation required, please visit

  • Breastfeeding!

    WIC is also focused on breastfeeding education, assessment, and peer support, both prenatally and postpartum.  WIC encourages women to breastfeed as the most nutritious way to feed their babies.  Mothers who fully breastfeed their babies are issued a larger food package to further support the mom and baby’s nutritional needs.  Totally breastfed babies will receive infant cereal and jars of baby food fruits, vegetables, and meats at six months of age.

    For after-hours breastfeeding support, participants may contact our Peer Counselor via the breastfeeding support hotline at 574-341-0441.
