The media frenzy surrounding the H1N1 virus has settled down in recent weeks but health officials still want the public to be aware that they're still vulnerable to catching the flu.

As part of National Influenza Vaccination Week, health departments across the country are stepping up their efforts to get citizens vaccinated.

The Madison County Health Department is hosting free H1N1 vaccine clinics at its locations in Richmond and Berea this week. They will take place Monday and Tuesday from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m.

The clinics are open to people of all ages. Both types of the H1N1 vaccine are available including the inhaled form and the injectable form.
