Hayden—The Panhandle Health District (PHD) will take appointments Saturday, Nov. 14, for H1N1 clinics on Saturday, Nov. 21, for people in the vaccination target groups in each of the five northern counties.
        The toll-free appointment line—877-415-5225--will be open from 9 a.m. until 1 p.m. on Nov. 14. The target groups are:
 
  • Pregnant women;
  • People who live with and/or care for children younger than 6 months old;
  • Anyone from age 6 months through 24 years;
  • Healthcare and emergency response workers; and
  • People from age 25 through 64 with chronic health conditions.
 
The clinic on Nov. 21 will allow children younger than 10 who had their first dose of vaccine on Oct. 24 to get their second dose and meet the necessary separation time between doses. Clinics on Nov. 21 will be held:
 
  • 10 a.m. to noon in Boundary, Bonner, Benewah and Shoshone counties;
