The Chatham Health District is currently planning for H1N1 clinics to be held in January. The State Department of Public Health has lifted the requirement for priority groups. The District has received both flu mist and shots. Nasal mist is designed for healthy individuals ages 2 to 49 years old. Flu shots will be limited to those individuals 6 – 24 months, individuals with underlying health issues disqualifying them for the mist and those individuals 50 years of age and older. Vaccination for anyone under the age of 10 years should be given twice, 30 days between doses. Please review the vaccine information statement and discuss any medical concerns with your physician.
The clinics are free and for residents of the Chatham Health District (East Hampton, East Haddam, Haddam, Hebron, Marlborough and Portland).
