Flu vaccine clinic set for Thursday

Wednesday, November 11, 2009

The Putnam County Health Department in partnership with the Putnam County Hospital will be conducting an H1N1 flu vaccine clinic Thursday from 1 to 7 p.m. at the Community Building at the Putnam County Fair Grounds.

Due to limited availability, the H1N1 flu shot will be available on a walk-in basis only to people in the following groups: Children ages 6 months to 12 years old, healthcare workers, emergency first responders, and pregnant women.

The nasal mist will be available to any health person (with no long-term health or immune system problems) ages 2 to 49 years old. The PCHD would like to encourage any person that falls into this category to get the nasal mist vaccine now rather than wait for the shot later.

For questions contact the Putnam County Health Department at 653-5210.
