Free H1N1 shot clinics through January for South Lake Tahoe

Staff reports

The El Dorado County Health Services Department is hosting free H1N1 flu vaccination walk-in clinics for the general public every Wednesday in January from 1 to 4 p.m. at the Public Health Division, 1360 Johnson Boulevard, Suite 103.

“There continues to be widespread flu activity in many parts of the nation,” said Dr. Olivia Kasirye, El Dorado County health officer.

“Although we saw a decline in December, the activity is unpredictable and can rise and fall throughout the season,” Kasirye added. “Therefore, we encourage people to get vaccinated, now that the supply has increased.” People should check with their family doctor about getting the H1N1 vaccine in the doctor’s office if they can.”

Appointments are also available for the H1N1 flu vaccination on Mondays and Fridays. For more information or to schedule an appointment, call (530) 573-3155.
