Health department has H1N1 vaccines

Because of an increasing supply of H1N1 vaccine, the Unicoi Health Department is able now to broaden availability and offer the vaccine to the general public.
The health department will hold an H1N1 vaccination clinic Saturday, Jan. 16, at Walmart SuperCenter, 110 Rocky Bottom Road in Unicoi, from noon until 6 p.m. The vaccine types available at this clinic are nasal and the shot, which will be provided at no charge.
Additional information about upcoming clinics and vaccine availability are on the Tennessee Department of Health Web site at www.health.state.tn.us/H1N1.htm.
During October and November when the H1N1 vaccine supply was limited, priority was placed on administering the vaccine to those in high risk categories. Additional supplies of the vaccine have now been received which allows the health department to offer it to the general public and hold clinics such as the one scheduled at Walmart on Saturday.
For more information about the H1N1 or seasonal flu vaccines, call the Unicoi Health Department at 743-9103 or contact the Tennessee Flu Information Line at 1-877-252-3432. Information is also available on the Web at www.tn.gov/health or www.flu.gov.
