H1N1 Clinic open to everyone

By  | 

Fayette County health officials announced today they will hold a H1N1 vaccine clinic that will be available to anyone who wants one.

The buzz surrounding the H1N1 virus seems to have died down a little bit according to Kevin Hall with the Fayette County Health Department, but appearances can be deceiving.

"You see it in peaks and valleys and right now the numbers are down for H1N1," Hall says.

He also says it's likely we may see another wave of the virus in addition to the seasonal flu, which is why he says it's not too late or a bad idea to get vaccinated for H1N1.

The county has held five previous flu shot clinics and given about 12 thousand shots to at risk groups in Fayette County. This Saturday they have about 6,000 doses of the H1N1 vaccine to give out.

The clinic will be held from 8:30 to 12:30 at Bryan Station High School and in conjunction with the Jessamine County Health Department a clinic will also be held at the same time at Southland Christian Church.
