H1N1 Vaccine Priority Groups Expanded
December 3, 2009
Contra Costa Health Services (CCHS) has expanded priority groups for its free H1N1 and seasonal flu vaccination clinic this Sunday in Pittsburg. The H1N1 vaccine priority groups for the walk-up clinic now include all children 6 months through 18 years old, and adults through 64 years with chronic medical conditions. This is based on guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the local vaccine supply situation. Both H1N1 and seasonal flu shots will be offered while supplies last.
