When & Where:
The walk-in clinic will be held from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, November 7 at Hilltop Mall in Richmond, 2200 Hilltop Mall Road, in the JC Penney parking lot.For a list of other CCHS community flu vaccination clinics visit www.cchealth.org/topics/swine_flu/
Because supplies of the H1N1 flu vaccine are currently limited and because we want to protect first those who are at most risk for severe complications from flu only people in the above priority groups will receive vaccine at this community flu vaccination clinic. The community H1N1 and seasonal flu vaccination clinic planned for Nov. 14 at Somersville Towne Center in Antioch has been canceled due to logistical issues. Another free community H1N1 and seasonal flu vaccination clinic will be rescheduled in a different East County city in the near future.
