Date:11/23/2009

Clinics Continue to Target Individuals in the Recommended Priority Groups

HARRISBURG, Pa., Nov. 23 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Department of Health announced today they will conduct three additional H1N1 vaccination clinics at local State Health Centers in Delaware, Lancaster, and Lehigh counties on Tuesday, Nov. 24, and Wednesday, Nov. 25. The H1N1 vaccine will be administered for free to individuals in the recommended target groups that have not had previous access to the vaccine. 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
  • those under 65 years of age with underlying health conditions, including asthma, diabetes, suppressed immune systems, heart disease, kidney disease, and neurocognitive and neuromuscular disorders.

Individuals in the recommended target groups must schedule an appointment time by calling 1-877-PA HEALTH (1-877-724-3258) between the hours of 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. Lines are limited. (Note: Online registration is NOT available for these clinics.)

Delaware, Lancaster and Lehigh county clinics that were held Nov. 20-22, were at full capacity, with every appointment scheduled. For this reason, the department will hold additional clinics this week. Tuesday's clinic hours are from 9 a.m. - noon and 1 p.m. - 4 p.m. Hours on Wednesday will be from 9 a.m. - noon and 1 p.m. - 3 p.m. Clinics will be held at the following locations:

  • Delaware County

151 West Fifth St.

Chester 19013

  • Lancaster County

1661 Old Philadelphia Pike

Lancaster 17601

  • Lehigh County

Suite 206

3730 Lehigh St.

Whitehall 18052

Anyone registering for these clinics 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.

As more vaccine becomes available, the department will schedule additional clinics throughout the state. The federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention indicates that eventually there will be enough vaccine for everyone who wants to receive it, but that may be several months away.
