Pennsylvania Department of Health to Offer H1N1 Vaccine to Priority Populations on Nov. 20, 21 and 22

Pennsylvania Department of Health to Offer H1N1 Vaccine to Priority Populations on Nov. 20, 21 and 22

Harrisburg – The Department of Health today announced it will conduct statewide clinics from Nov. 20–22 to administer free H1N1 vaccine to individuals in the recommended target groups that have not had previous access to the vaccine.

Individuals in the recommended target groups must schedule an appointment time, day and location prior to the clinic in order to receive the H1N1 vaccine. This will help ensure that the correct type and amount of vaccine is available at each location.

“Our goal is to get the H1N1 vaccine to as many people as possible who are at risk of suffering serious complications from the virus,” said Deputy Secretary Michael Huff. “These public health clinics will help us do just that with the amount of vaccine that is currently available to us.”

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

· Individuals under 65 years of age with underlying health conditions, including asthma, diabetes, suppressed immune systems, heart disease, kidney disease, and neurocognitive and neuromuscular disorders.

A total of 18 health clinics, three in each of the department’s six districts, will be held on Nov. 20, 21 and 22. Clinic hours on Friday, Nov. 20 and Sunday, Nov. 22 will be 2 p.m. to 8 p.m. Hours on Saturday, Nov. 21, will be 8 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Appointments can be made at www.H1N1inPA.com under “What’s Hot,” 24 hours a day. Individuals without internet access can call 1-877-PA HEALTH (1-877-724-3258) between the hours of 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. Lines are limited.

Anyone seeking vaccination 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.

Visit www.H1N1inPA.com to learn more about priority groups, potential vaccine side effects and other important information.

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.

I would not touch that shot with a 10 foot pole. Know of a young mother who got the shot, and experienced FRIGHTENING side effects. She has had a long siege of issues, starting with not being able to walk! She is much improved, but not 100%. All she wants is to have the strength to care for her young children. Another friend got so sick, was sick for almost two weeks! What's the point of getting the shot if you are going to get sick anyhow? The fact is Swine Flu is harsh, but the deaths from it are no greater than those of other flus. Yet, we got near-hysteria from the media over it.

There are thousands of people that got this vaccination and have not suffered any side effects. Some of you are overreacting. The flu is so widespread from people refusing to get the vacccine spreading it to everyone else.

Really? I guess the news station on the radio was wrong yesterday when I heard there were more cases in the spring than now...this whole thing has been blow out of proportion...no worse than the regular strain of flu...smoke and mirrors...so the Dem's could get their unified health care passed...YES YOU CAN...CHANGE I HOPE YOU CAN AFFORD!
