St. Louis County Public Health to Provide H1N1 Flu Vaccine Clinics
The St. Louis County Public Health and Human Services Department will hold H1N1 Novel Influenza vaccination clinics for children aged 6 months through 9 years old.  If children have already experienced influenza-like illness, unless it was laboratory confirmed as H1N1, vaccination is still recommended. Vaccine supplies are limited, so clinics will remain open during the below listed times or until all vaccine has been given. There is no cost for this vaccination.
Clinics will be held in the following communities:
Hibbing: Hibbing Memorial Building    Virginia:   Miners Memorial Building
400 E 23rd St, Hibbing                                          821 South 9th Ave, Virginia
Saturday, November 21                                        Sunday, November 22
10:00-2:00 pm                                                      1:00-5:00 pm
Ely:   Vermilion Community College     Cook:     Cook High School
1900 Camp E St, Ely                                          302 E Vermilion Blvd, Cook
Monday, November 23                                      Tuesday, November 24
3:00-7:00 pm                                                   3:00-7:00 pm
The majority of available vaccine is Flu Mist, which is recommended for people between age 2 & 49 years old with no underlying health conditions. There will be a very small amount of injectable vaccine available. Future clinics will depend upon receipt of additional vaccine and the targeted priority groups that can be served.
