Targeted H1N1 vaccine clinic planned for Hamilton County residents

HAMILTON COUNTY, OH – Hamilton County Public Health is coordinating appointment-only H1N1 vaccination clinics for residents at highest risk for serious complications from flu.

The Tuesday, November 10 clinic is only for adults or parents who live with or care for children younger than 6 months of age.

The Wednesday, November 11 only for children ages 5 -18 who have a chronic medical condition.

Individuals should pre-register to receive the vaccine on-line.

Appointment-only clinics will serve those most at risk for hospitalization from flu:

  • Pregnant women
  • People who live with or care for children younger than 6 months of age
  • Children 6 months through 4 years of age
  • Children 5 through 18 years of age who have a chronic medical condition

The pre-registration process enables Hamilton County Public Health to coordinate vaccine supply with the number of individuals registered. This will prevent long wait lines and assure an adequate supply for those attending the clinic. Individuals must be pre-registered and scheduled to attend. Pre-registered individuals will be notified of the upcoming clinic. Documentation that individuals are in the priority group must be provided. This may include: prescription, medicine bottle, appointment card, birth certificate, hospital discharge summary or another form of proof.

The following clinics will be held next week. Individuals must be pre-registered and have an appointment to attend.

Vaccine is arriving in limited quantities and Hamilton County Public Health is targeting this early vaccine to high-risk individuals as identified by CDC. Appointment-only vaccination clinics will be conducted in an effort to reach additional populations that are not already being served by school-based vaccination clinics. Thus far we have vaccinated over 14,000 school children and eligible staff, over 100 pregnant women and assured vaccine for 1,600 EMS workers.
