JoCo Health Department to have H1N1 clinic Thursday

December 9, 2009

The Johnson County Health Department is offering a public H1N1 vaccination clinic from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Thursday. The clinic will be at the Sunset Drive Office Building, 11811 S. Sunset Drive, Olathe. This building is just east of the Health Department. Vaccine is free of charge.

Because of the weather and limited parking, shuttle buses will be available to transport people the short distance from the Health Department to the Sunset Drive Office Building and back.

Vaccine will be administered on a first-come, first-served basis. Becasue an increase in the amount of vaccine available, anyone interested in getting vaccinated will be able to do so.

It is especially important for individuals in these high-risk categories to receive vaccine:

Pregnant women

Persons who live with or provide regular care for infants less than six months of age (parents, siblings, daycare providers, etc.)

Healthcare and emergency services personnel

Persons six months through 24 years of age

Persons 25 through 64 who have medical conditions that put them at higher risk for influenza-related complications

Save some time in line! Consent forms as well as vaccine information sheets will be provided before the clinic at www.jocoflu.org. It is encouraged to have the form printed and filled out when you arrive at the site.

For additional information, go to www.jocoflu.org, or call the flu information line at (913) 826-1263 from 8:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. Monday through Friday.
