Topeka (WIBW) - Shawnee County is changing the times of its upcoming H1N1 vaccination clinics.
The County's Health Agency announced Friday it would hold the clinics Nov. 12th and Nov. 19th from 3 to 7 pm, instead of 10 am to 2 pm. They say the change will allow them to accommodate more people in the targeted populations.
The clinics still will be held at the Kansas Expocentre.
Vaccine available at these clinics will be directed to individuals who meet one of the following criteria:
•Healthcare workers with direct contact with patients
•Children 6 months through 18 years of age
•Caregivers of children 6 months and younger
The agency reminds people that anyone 9 years of age or younger receiving the H1N1 vaccine will require a second dose of the vaccine 28 days after the first dose.
The Health Agency is working with local medical providers as well as planning for additional public clinics to accommodate this need.
The Health Agency will make updated information on H1N1 and its vaccinations through United Way’s 2-1-1 line.
The Health Agency's first H1N1 vaccination clinic two weeks ago saw long waits and doses running out within two hours. The second clinic streamlined the waiting process and doses were left over.
