H1N1 clinic planned for Thursday

The Washtenaw County Department of Public Health will not host H1N1 flu clinics in The Ann Arbor Public Schools as originally scheduled.

Instead, a mass vaccination for high-priority groups is being offered on Thursday, Nov. 5 from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. at the Eastern Michigan University Convocation Center, 299 N. Hewitt Road, Ypsilanti.

The free H1N1 shots are being offered only to high-priority groups due to limited supply of the vaccine. These groups include: pregnant women, household and caregiver contacts of children younger than 6 months, health care personnel who provide direct patient care, children from 6 months through 4 years of age and children and teens age 5 through 18 who have medical conditions associated with a higher risk of influenza complications, such as asthma.

Details: 734-544-6700 or visit the health department online.
