Dear Neighbor,

I hope you are enjoying these beautiful fall days and staying healthy! I am so pleased that after several years of study and collaboration, Lake County will soon have a countywide paratransit system, providing a seamless, low-cost option for seniors and disabled residents to get to medical appointments, work, shopping, and other important destinations.

Please read below information on how and where to get vaccinated.
