Roll up Your Sleeve to Fight Flu!

Now is the time to roll up your sleeve and get your influenza (flu) vaccine. The vaccine takes approximately two weeks to build up your immune system’s defense. 

While flu and COVID-19 share many characteristics, one key difference is that there are vaccines to prevent flu. The vaccine is effective at preventing common flu strains and reduces the severity of your illness if you do get the flu. 

Contact your doctor or visit vaccinefinder.org to find a flu vaccine provider near you. Flu vaccines are available at the Health Department’s Community Health Centers across Lake County. For an appointment, call (847) 377-8800.
