Huron County offers H1N1 vaccination Clinic Today

An H1N1 vaccination clinic will be held on Tuesday, November 10 from 4-7 pm at the Huron Area Technical Center (HATC).

Per CDC guidelines, vaccine will be given to members of the initial target group. This group includes:
• pregnant women,
• persons who live with or provide care for infants aged <6 months (e.g., parents, siblings, and daycare providers),
• health-care and emergency medical services personnel,
• children aged 6 months--24 years, and
• persons aged 25-64 who have medical conditions that put them at higher risk for influenza-related complications

Children and adults who have medical conditions that put them at higher risk for influenza-related complications will receive injectable vaccine. Healthy children and adults who meet the above criteria would receive nasal spray. Healthy children and adults who do not want the nasal spray will need to wait to be vaccinated until we receive adequate supplies of injectable inactivated vaccine. A parent or legal guardian must be present for children under 18 years of age. This vaccine is intended for Huron County Residents. There will be no charge for the H1N1 vaccinations.

Additional H1N1 clinics will be scheduled as vaccine shipments are received. Please call 989-269-9721 ext 150 or visit our website at huron.localhealth.net.
