H1N1 Clinic Saturday, 11-21 in Knoxville

The next public H1N1 Clinic is set for Saturday, November 21, 2009 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on the second floor of the National Sprint Car Hall of Fame & Museum in Knoxville.  Public Health spokeswoman Diane Ellis says the clinic will include anyone from 6 months to 24 years, pregnant women, healthcare workers or emergency personnel, and people aged 25-64 years that have chronic medical conditions.  Ellis says in addition to ‘priority group’ people, children six months to nine years who received a ‘primer’ shot last month need to get their second H1N1 shot for protection. The ‘primer’ is the first shot the children received, which gets them ready to receive the H1N1 shot four weeks later. Dorn says those children need to bring the cards they received when they got their ‘primer’, which will tell them when they can get the H1N1 shot. Those children can only receive the H1N1 shot after the date they got on their cards last month.
