Read a New Book Month and Safe Toys & Gifts Month and
December 7-13th is National Influenza Vaccination Week (NIVW), an excellent time to encourage everyone you know to get their flu shot. Getting vaccinated in December, January and beyond can still protect against influenza. The CDC recommends a yearly flu vaccine for everyone six months of age and older as the first and most important step in protecting against the flu. Pregnant women and young children are especially at risk of serious complications from this disease (see more under Public Education tab).
All Lake County children will grow up in safe, supportive and healthy environments,
and enter school healthy and ready to learn.
