H1N1 Vaccine Clinic Schedule for Youth and Pregnant Women

Friday, October 16, 2009
 
 
Mayor Adrian M. Fenty and Pierre Vigilance, MD MPH, director of the DC Department of Health (DOH) today announced locations where District residents can receive a free vaccination for the H1N1 influenza based on priority categories.
 
The District will have a clinic in each ward, beginning next week, which will be open to all youth and pregnant women in the District. The school-based vaccine clinics will serve youth ranging in age from 6 months to 24 years old and pregnant women. The H1N1 vaccine will be offered in both the injection and nasal spray forms at no cost. Many community health clinics and primary care providers in the District have signed up to provide the vaccine to their patients. Parents and members of the priority groups are encouraged to call their providers to see if they have the vaccine. "The District should eventually have enough vaccine for everyone in the city who wants it,” said Vigilance. “Residents in priority groups are strongly encouraged to seek out the vaccine to help protect themselves and the rest of the community from H1N1.”
 
Over the coming weeks, the H1N1 vaccine will be distributed to pharmacies in drugstores and groceries that have agreed to carry the vaccine. To help residents find a location, DOH will launch the Flu Shot Finder at flu.dc.gov next week to allow residents to search for the nearest location to get the seasonal or H1N1 influenza vaccine. Once the priority groups have been vaccinated, DOH will have clinics for the general public to receive the H1N1 vaccine.
 
Individuals considered a priority by DOH and the CDC are:
  • Health care workers and emergency medical responders
  • Pregnant women
  • Children and young adults from 6 months to 24 years
  • People caring for infants under 6 months of age
  • People aged 25 to 64 years with underlying medical conditions, such as asthma or diabetes
