An announcement was made by West Virginia Health Right on Tuesday, July 5, 2016 about medical services for flood victims. The organization will have a huge medical RV set up near the Magic Mart or Kroger in Rainelle from Noon to 6 p.m. starting on Tuesday and staying through Thursday afternoon.
Services being provided include free tetanus shots, free prescription medications for people who lost their medicine in the flooding, including insulin. They will also be providing first aid and treatment for wounds. Emergency hygiene packs and other supplies will be distributed as well.
Health Right is not forgetting those who cannot get out to receive care. They will have a small team of professionals traveling in a van to more remote area. Organizers ask anyone who knows people who are shut-in and need medical care to let them know about the services.
