According to New York State’s Department of Health, around 1.6 million residents have been diagnosed with diabetes and a majority of them rely on insulin everyday. Co-payments had previously been capped at $35 for a 30-day supply; going forward, the co-pay will be zero for insulin purchases statewide, estimated to save individuals insulin-dependent more than $400 a year. This makes the Empire State the first in the nation to eliminate this co-pay, according to the American Diabetes Association.



A Rochester man has been arrested and charged for allegedly sending a threatening email and fax to federal and local law enforcement. 27-year-old Eric Anthony is charged with threatening to assault, kidnap, or murder federal law enforcement with intent to impede, intimidate or interfere with officers engaged in the performance of official duties. According to officials, Anthony was living with his mother in a Rochester home at the time of his arrest. In addition to making threats, he also made a set of demands related to gun laws and asked for $650,000 to be transferred to his Cash App, as well as ammunition magazines. He noted, if those demands weren’t met and if anything were to happen to his family after the message, he would impose a “hellish strategic move.” Anthony faces multiple felony charges.

This is National Infant Immunization Week, a yearly observation that highlights the importance of protecting infants from birth to two years of age from serious childhood diseases. Vaccines have greatly reduced infant deaths and disability caused by 14 preventable diseases like measles, mumps, whooping cough, chickenpox and polio. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), on-time vaccinations throughout childhood help provide immunity before children are exposed to potentially life-threatening diseases. Delaying vaccines leaves children unprotected during the time when they need vaccine protection the most. For more information, please call the Genesee County Health Department at 344-2580.
