Two notes today if you want to get vaccinated against H1N1 flu but haven’t done it yet: First, new WSB sponsor West Seattle Community Clinic just sent word that it’s received more H1N1 vaccine. They have mist and shots, and will administer by appointment (they’re open M-F and occasional Saturdays/Sundays at 35th/Henderson): 206-937-9722. King County Public Health also has announced upcoming clinics to provide H1N1 vaccine to people who can’t afford it – including two in White Center, this coming Saturday and Wednesday. Read on:
The full county announcement:
It’s not too late to get an H1N1 flu vaccination. H1N1 flu, also called swine flu, is expected to continue to spread, and H1N1 vaccination will protect you and your family so you won’t miss days of school, work or other important events due to this flu.
Anyone over 6 months of age is now eligible to receive H1N1 vaccine in King County . It’s especially important for people who are at highest risk for H1N1 influenza, including pregnant women, babies and young children, and people with chronic health conditions or weakened immune systems. H1N1 vaccine is being distributed to many health care providers and local pharmacies.
Call your health care provider or check pharmacy locations at www.kingcounty.gov/health/H1N1.
