The Huron County General Health District will offer several ways for residents to receive their seasonal influenza vaccine this year.
There will be five "drive-thru" clinics, and shots can be scheduled at any of the Health District's five clinic locations Norwalk, Willard, Greenwich, New London and Bellevue. Pneumonia vaccine will also be available at the "drive-thru clinics" or by appointment at a health district office.
The seasonal flu shot does not vaccinate against the H1N1 pandemic flu. A separate vaccine is being produced for H1N1 pandemic flu. H1N1 vaccine is expected to be available beginning in mid to late October.
The first "drive-thru" clinic will be held from 6 to 8 p.m. Monday at the Willard Alliance Church, 1609 S. Conwell Ave., Willard. The second "drive-thru" clinic will be held from 5 to 7 p.m. Thursday at the First Baptist Church, 432 Park Ave., New London. The third "drive-thru" clinic will be held from 5 to 7 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 30, 2009 at St. Mary's Church, 46 E. Main St., Wakeman.
