Lawrence-Douglas County Health Department schedules more H1N1 vaccination clinics, including Baldwin City

December 16, 2009

The Lawrence-Douglas County Health Department will make the H1N1 vaccine available during an all-day clinic Monday, Dec. 21.

The clinic will be from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Community Health Facility, 200 Maine.

That’s in addition to a clinic scheduled from 6 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. today, Dec. 16, at the Community Health Facility.

The clinics are for any Douglas County resident who wants protection from the virus. There is no charge and no appointment is necessary.

Clinics also are scheduled for Eudora and Baldwin City in early January.

They will be:

• Wednesday, Jan. 6, 4 p.m. to 7 p.m., Eudora Middle School, 2635 Church St., Eudora.

• Thursday, Jan. 7, 4:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m., Baldwin High School, 415 Eisenhower St., Baldwin City.

The health department encourages children younger than 10, who have received their first dose of the H1N1 vaccine, to receive their second booster immunization at the upcoming clinics. A period of one month must have passed between the child’s first and second doses.

To help expedite the process, clients are encouraged to download a consent form at www.ldchealth.org, fill it out and take it to the clinic. A second consent form must be filled out for children receiving their second dose.
