Health District Vaccination Clinic for all Target Groups

 

Hayden—The Panhandle Health District (PHD) will provide H1N1 vaccinations to people in all vaccination target groups by appointment in clinics in each of the five northern counties on Saturday, Nov. 7.

The target groups are:

 

·        Pregnant women;

·        People who live with or care for children younger than 6 months old;

·        Anyone between the ages of 6 months through 24 years;

·        People from age 25 through 64 with chronic health conditions such as asthma or diabetes;

·        Healthcare and emergency response workers.

 

            “We want to make sure that the people the CDC has identified as needing it most get it as soon as we have it,” said Jeanne Bock, PHD director. “We’ve had many calls from people in the target groups who are worried and want the vaccine. Now that we have it, we want them to have it.”

            For the 1,200 doses of vaccine available in both the nasal flu mist and the injectable form, PHD will take appointments Friday, Nov. 6, from 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m., on its toll-free appointment line, 1-877-415-5225. The vaccination clinics will be open:
