Targeting Teens in Lake County
The Patty Turner Center in Deerfield is also prioritizing doses of the Pfizer vaccine for local high school students who are at-risk (as this is the only vaccine approved for use by 16 and 17 year olds). Visit the Doctors Test Centers to check appointment availability.

Calling All College Students
