State Holding H1N1 Clinic for General Assembly
By Stan Lehr
The State Health Department is hosting an H1N1 flu vaccination clinic Tuesday -- for the Indiana General Assembly.
The vaccine has been available to all Hoosiers who want it since late December. The State Health Commissioner, Dr. Judy Monroe, says, "I'm very glad to see our legislators getting the H1N1 vaccine, and hope it will encourage their constituents to do the same."
She reminds us that influenza activity typically peaks during the winter months and that it is very unpredictable. "We could see another wave in late winter or spring," said Dr. Monroe.
If you want the shot, you can use the Flu Shot Locator at http://www.in.gov/flu - www.in.gov/flu to find a location. Local health departments are providing the H1N1 vaccine free of charge. Pharmacies can charge an administrative fee of up to $19.59 and some may not be able to vaccinate children under 14 years of age.
