RESOURCES ON COVID-19
From the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention


What is the difference between Influenza (Flu) and COVID-19?
Influenza (Flu) and COVID-19 are both contagious respiratory illnesses, but they are caused by different viruses. COVID-19 is caused by infection with a new coronavirus (called SARS-CoV-2) and flu is caused by infection with influenza viruses. Because some of the symptoms of flu and COVID-19 are similar, it may be hard to tell the difference between them based on symptoms alone, and testing may be needed to help confirm a diagnosis. Flu and COVID-19 share many characteristics, but there are some key differences between the two.
While more is learned every day, there is still a lot that is unknown about COVID-19 and the virus that causes it.

New Library Hours
Update: September 1, 2021





 
Van Buren/Cass District Health Department is administering COVID-19 vaccine based on priority groups determined by MDHHS and subject to vaccine availability.  This form determines phase and priority groups for individuals and workplaces and collects contact information.  We will notify you using the contact information provided when we are able to schedule you for COVID-19 vaccination, please ensure the information is accurate before submitting.  
 
Vaccination in one phase may not be complete before vaccination in another phase begins.  The timing of the start of vaccination in a phase is dependent upon the supply of vaccine from the manufacturer, how vaccine is allocated from the federal level to Michigan, and the capacity to administer vaccine to populations. 

Further information can be found at www.vbcassdhd.org/covid-19-vaccine.
