Lake County Public Health Division announces flu vaccination clinic schedule

LAKE COUNTY, Calif. — It’s “flu” season and the Lake County Public Health Division has announced its community influenza vaccination clinic schedule.

Getting vaccinated is a great way to avoid getting the flu, and this is especially important during the time of COVID-19.

Anyone 6 months of age or older is encouraged to get a flu vaccine. Being careful to use good hygiene is another way to protect yourself and those around you.

If you cough or sneeze, cover your nose and mouth with a tissue or the crook of your arm instead of your hands. A virus can easily be passed from your hands to the things you touch.

Wash your hands often and use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer when soap and water aren’t available. Try not to touch your face with your hands. A virus can enter your system through the membranes of your eyes, nose and mouth.

Protect yourself by continuing to avoid close contact with non-household members, especially if they are ill or unmasked.

Choosing a healthful lifestyle can also help to keep you well. Getting enough sleep, eating nutritious foods, drinking plenty of water and staying physically active can help to maintain a healthy immune system.

The symptoms of the flu include a temperature of over 100 degrees Fahrenheit combined with a cough, sore throat, body aches, headache and a lack of energy. If you are ill, stay home to keep from infecting others.

Lake County Public Health is offering seasonal flu vaccines for free this year, in addition to COVID-19 vaccines. COVID-19 Vaccines that will be available include first and second doses of Pfizer and Moderna, and first dose of Janssen. Masks are required to participate in all clinics.

Lake County Public Health will be offering flu and COVID-19 vaccines at the Public Health Division, 922 Bevins Court in Lakeport. Appointments can be made at http://myturn.ca.gov or by calling 1-833-422-4255.

Scheduled drive clinics for the seasonal flu vaccines are as follows; dates and locations are subject to change and additional dates will be announced as vaccine and staffing allows.
