HARRISBURG, Pa., Nov. 18 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Department of Health today announced a change of location for a H1N1 vaccination clinic to be held Nov. 20-22 in Delaware County.
The clinic, intended only for people at high risk of complications from H1N1 flu, will now be held at Penn State Brandywine Campus in Media. It previously was scheduled to be held at Chichester Middle School in Boothwyn. Individuals who already registered to receive the H1N1 vaccine at the Chichester site do not need to re-register.
The vaccination clinics will be held Friday, Nov. 20 and Sunday, Nov. 22 from 2 p.m. to 8 p.m. and Saturday, Nov. 21 from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. The locations in the southeast region are as follows:
- Reading State Office Building, 625 Cherry St., Room 401, Reading 19602

- Penn State Brandywine Campus, Commons/Athletic Building, 25 Yearsley Mill Rd. (off Route 352, also known as Middletown Rd.), Media 19063 Note: please use Campus Drive entrance.
Individuals in the at-risk target groups must schedule an appointment time, day and location prior to the clinic in order to receive the H1N1 vaccine. This will help ensure that the correct type and amount of vaccine is available at each location.
Appointments can be made at www.H1N1inPA.com under "What's Hot," 24 hours a day. Individuals without internet access can call 1-877-PA HEALTH (1-877-724-3258) between the hours of 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. Lines are limited.
Anyone seeking vaccination should download an H1N1 vaccine consent form from www.h1n1inPA.com. Consent forms must be completed for each individual that has scheduled to be vaccinated. Preparing this form in advance will help the clinics more quickly register and vaccinate people.
The department asks that only individuals in the following groups attend the clinics:
- Individuals between the ages of six months and 24 years;
- Household contacts and caregivers for children younger than six months;
- Pregnant women;
- Healthcare providers and emergency medical services personnel; and
- Individuals under 65 years of age with underlying health conditions, including asthma, diabetes, suppressed immune systems, heart disease, kidney disease, and neurocognitive and neuromuscular disorders.
