Nearly 50,000 Vaccinated at 2-Day H1N1 Clinics; Pennsylvania Department of Health Continues Vaccination Efforts
Date:1/11/2010

HARRISBURG, Pa., Jan. 11 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Department of Health vaccinated 49,078 Pennsylvanians at 33 H1N1 flu clinics held across the state on Jan. 8 and 9. The department urges anyone who has not yet been vaccinated to get immunized.

"It's still important for people to get vaccinated even though flu activity is currently very low," said Health Secretary Everette James. "It is likely that we will have a third wave of H1N1 flu, so it is vital for people to protect themselves and those they love from what can be a deadly disease."

The clinics involved more than 1,100 support personnel, including state employees, contracted nurses, paramedics, and volunteers.

The department will continue its vaccination efforts at 60 state health centers every Saturday through February 6, from 9 a.m. to noon. Appointments are not needed. In addition, staff will be holding immunization clinics on specific days during the week. For more information and to find a clinic, call 1-877-PA HEALTH.

To date, 4,736,700 doses of H1N1 vaccine have been allocated to Pennsylvania. The department continues to order vaccine on behalf of certified private providers.
