Lake county’s Public Health Dept. reminding we’re upon flu season and getting a flu shot is the best prevention. So those 6 months and older are encouraged to get vaccinated. Another way to avoid getting sick is to use good hygiene to protect yourself and those around you. Use the crook of your arm or of course a tissue If you cough or sneeze and cover your nose and mouth too. Viruses can easily pass from hands to anything you touch, so washing your hands frequently or using an alcohol-based hand sanitizer if soap and water aren’t available.  Lake County Public Health is offering seasonal flu vaccines for $2. For more info give them a call to make your appointment.
