SAN DIEGO COUNTY–The San Diego County Health and Human Services Agency (HHSA) will hold five more H1N1 vaccination events for San Diego County residents in the upcoming weeks.
The first is Tuesday, Feb. 16, from 3 to 7 p.m. at the El Corazon Senior Center, 3302 Senior Center Drive in Oceanside. The other events will be held in Escondido, Chula Vista, El Cajon and San Diego.
“We’ve had great response to our H1N1 vaccination events, but we know there are still people out there that haven’t been vaccinated and we want to reach those individuals,” said Wilma Wooten, M.D., M.P.H, San Diego County Public Health Officer. “It’s not too late to get vaccinated against H1N1. We encourage everyone to get vaccinated to protect themselves and their loved ones.”
HHSA also continues to offer the H1N1 vaccine at six Public Health Centers and the VIP Immunization Clinic. You should contact your medical provider about getting the H1N1 flu vaccine.
