HARRISBURG, Pa., Nov. 16 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, or CDC, has allocated a total of 1,686,100 doses of H1N1 vaccine to Pennsylvania to date, the Department of Health said today.

The vaccine has been distributed to 1,312 certified providers including pediatricians, family health practitioners, obstetricians, hospitals, schools, colleges and universities that agreed to target the groups of people considered most vulnerable to complications from the H1N1 virus.

Priority groups for receiving the H1N1 vaccination include pregnant women; persons six months to 24 years old; healthcare providers and emergency medical services personnel; parents, household members or caregivers of children under six months; and those under 65 with certain underlying medical conditions.

The department will conduct statewide clinics from Nov. 20-22 to administer free H1N1 vaccine to individuals in the recommended target groups that have not had previous access to the vaccine.
