Lake County Public Health will offer free H1N1 vaccinations on Wednesday, March 3, at Lower Lake Elementary School.
The clinic will take place from 2:30 p.m. to 4 p.m. at the school, located at 9430 Lake St.
People of any age (over 6 months) are welcome, but children who need a first or second dose are especially encouraged to come to this clinic.
Children under age 10 years need two doses of H1N1 vaccine separated by at least one month.
Coming soon are additional opportunities to get vaccinated. Designated pharmacies throughout Lake
County will soon be able to offer vaccinations free-of-charge, primarily for older children and adults.
Information about locations, dates, hours and any age restrictions will be advertised in the near future.
In addition, Lake County Public Health on 922 Bevins Court will offer vaccinations from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. on Tuesdays throughout the month of March. Families with young children are encouraged to take
advantage of this opportunity.
People of all ages are strongly encouraged to get vaccinated against H1N1 influenza. This will help prevent a resurgence of disease over the coming months and will prepare for the upcoming influenza season.
The H1N1 vaccination is recommended for protection throughout the spring and summer. The seasonal
influenza vaccine that will be available in the fall will also be recommended because it will protect against other strains of influenza and will strengthen immunity against H1N1 in people who were previously vaccinated.
