It's Not Too Late To Vaccinate

Lake County Public Health has a couple more flu shot clinics available.  Anyone 6 months of age or older is encouraged to get a flu vaccine.   In addition to flu shots, we will also be offering the Tdap (Tetanus, Diptheria and Pertussis) vaccine - also known at the whooping cough vaccine. 

The Tdap vaccine is required for all children entering the 7th grade and is recommended for all adults who have not yet received a dose.  It is especially important to vaccinate adults who are around small infants. 

Seasonal flu shots are $2 and the Tdap vaccine is $9.

Lake County Public Health Clinic schedule for the seasonal flu shots and Tdap vaccines is as follows:
