Public Health Opens H1N1 vaccine Saturday to all Summit County residents

SUMMIT COUNTY – The Summit County Public Health Department will make 2009 H1N1 influenza vaccinations available to all individuals as supplies allow, providing access beyond just the high-risk populations.

A clinic will be held this Saturday from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. for the general public to access the vaccine. The clinic will be held in the Summit High School Cafeteria. There is no charge for the H1N1 vaccine; injections and nasal mist will be available.

Vaccines will be available at other community locations such as doctor’s offices and large store pharmacies later in December. An administrative fee may be charged at these locations. Vaccines will also be available at public health by appointment.

So far, Summit County Public Health has provided 3,651 doses of the 2009 H1N1 influenza vaccine to the community.
