Macomb County Health Department Schedules Two More H1N1 Flu Vaccine Clinics Dec. 3 and 5
Date:11/25/2009

MT. CLEMENS, Mich., Nov. 25 /PRNewswire/ -- Two more H1N1 vaccine clinics have been scheduled for Thursday, Dec. 3 and Saturday, Dec. 5, the Macomb County Health Department announced today. They are being offered at no charge and both take place at Freedom Hill County Park in Sterling Heights.

The Dec. 3 clinic will be held from noon to 7 p.m.; the Dec. 5 one will run from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. The thimerosol-free version of the injectable vaccine will be available upon request, while supplies last. Both injectable and nasal spray immunization will be offered. Pregnant women cannot be given the nasal spray version of the vaccine.

Due to the continued limited availability of vaccine, the Macomb County Health Department is serving only those in the following high-risk groups at this time through the clinics:

INJECTABLE VACCINE

  • Pregnant women
  • New parents and household contacts of children less than 6 months of age
  • Healthy children and young adults 6 months through 24 years of age
  • Health care and emergency medical services workers (regardless of age)
  • Adults ages 25 to 64 years of age with high-risk medical conditions that increase risk of complications from influenza

NASAL VACCINE

Healthy, nonpregnant persons who:

  • Are from 2 through 24 years of age
  • Are from 25 through 49 years of age and live with or care for infants younger than 6 months of age
  • Are health care or emergency medical services workers and are from 25 through 49 years of age

Children under 10 years old need two doses of vaccine to receive adequate immunity. These children need to wait at least 28 days before receiving the second dose. The health department requests that those whose children received dose one of the vaccine through one of its clinics please bring the card they were given that day with them, so their records can be updated appropriately.

Persons accompanying pregnant women to the clinics are also eligible to receive the H1N1 vaccine if they are living in her household and fall into one of the following groups:

  • Age 6 months through 24 years of age
  • Age 25 through 64 with a chronic medical condition
  • Health care worker or EMS provider
  • If there is already an infant under 6 months of age in the household

In addition to these clinics offered by the health department, more than 86,000 doses of injectable and nasal spray vaccine have been shipped to physician offices and hospitals across Macomb County. Pediatricians and OB/GYNs are two primary groups that have requested vaccine supply through the H1N1 vaccine enrollment process. "Call your doctor to see if he or she is offering the vaccine to patients in the office setting," said Steve Gold, Macomb County Health Department deputy health officer.
