County Health Departments to Hold Fast Lane Swine Flu Vaccination Clinics for Senior Citizens
February 8, 2010
Mississippi State Department of Health county health departments will offer special "Fast Lane" 2009 H1N1 (swine) flu vaccination clinics for senior citizens Thursday and Friday of this week.
The "Fast Lane" clinic provides for immediate service without a wait, and just one quick form to complete. Free, custom 2009 H1N1 Valentine’s Day T-shirts will be given while supplies last.
County clinics will be offering Fast Lane services on Thursday, Friday or both days. Check with your local health department office for details.
"Most of you waited while we first vaccinated those at higher risk of infection, such as small children," said State Health Officer Dr. Mary Currier. "Now it's time for our senior citizens to get their vaccinations. The 2009 H1N1 vaccine is free at all county health departments; it's safe and it's effective"
