H1N1 vaccination clinic at Parkway Central High School

The Saint Louis County Department of Health will be offering free H1N1 flu vaccinations to county residents at five locations on Saturday, December 5th.  

The five priority groups being targeted for the December 5th events are:

• pregnant women;
• youth from 6 months of age through 24 years of age;
• caregivers of and those who live with infants under the age of 6 months;
• adults from 25 years of age through 64 years of age with an underlying health condition that makes them more susceptible to flu complications; and
• emergency medical service personnel and healthcare workers.

Those wishing to be vaccinated will need to obtain a line ticket from one of the five clinic locations prior to being admitted.  A drive-through distribution area for handing out line tickets will be set up at each of the five locations.  Line tickets will be available at each location starting at 7:00 a.m.  The vaccinations will be administered between 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. 

At least 15,000 doses of vaccine will be available at the Saturday clinics – 3,000 at each of the five sites.  A mixture of H1N1 shots and intranasal mist will be available at each site.  Because of limited supplies, it will not be possible to honor individual preferences.  The type of vaccine used will be based on what is medically appropriate for each patient.
