Swine flu clinic is Friday

December 03, 2009

The Washington County Health Department will conduct a free walk-in vaccination clinic for H1N1 flu from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Friday, Dec. 4, in the annex in the rear of the Health Department's main building at 1302 Pennsylvania Ave.

Only individuals included in one of the nationally established target populations will be eligible for vaccination. These groups include, pregnant women; people who live with or care for children younger than 6 months of age; health care and emergency medical services personnel; people between the ages of 6 months and 24 years old; and people between the ages of 25 and 64 who are at higher risk for 2009 H1N1 because of chronic health disorders or compromised immune systems.

The vaccine used will be in the injectable form and is for distribution of the H1N1 flu vaccine, which will not provide protection from the seasonal flu.
