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:
Tuesday, October 30, 2012 from 10 am to 12 pm at the Public Health Division, 922 Bevins Ct. Lakeport, Ca.
Tuesday, November 6, 2012 from 1 pm to 3 pm at the Public Health Division, 922 Bevins Ct. Lakeport, Ca.
Flu vaccinations are also available in a variety of locations, such as your primary care provider and local pharmacies.
The Lake County Public Health Division wishes you all a healthy and happy Fall and Winter season. Please call 1-800-794-9291 or 263-1090 with questions or concerns.
