HEALTH ALERT: Severe Pulmonary Injury Associated With Vaping
Since June 2019, there have been reports of at least 20 suspected cases in California of severe acute pulmonary injury in previously healthy adults with a recent history of vaping. Vaping refers to the increasingly popular practice of inhaling vapor from an e-cigarette device, which works by heating a liquid that can contain nicotine, marijuana, or other drugs. The liquids used in e-cigarettes are largely unregulated, and they can contain toxic chemicals that can cause lung damage; the long-term health impacts of vaping are unknown. Nationally, nearly 200 suspected cases have been reported. No suspected cases have been reported to the County of Santa Clara Public Health Department to date. Click here for details.

• Online Module: Complete an online module (30 minutes), or
• Walk-through: Register for a general walk-through of the building (60-90 minutes), or

There is no need to preregister, attendees can walk-in to grab a bite to eat, watch the module, and continue with their day. Food and beverages will be provided at all events.
