Children age nine and younger who have received their first H1N1 immunization will be able to get the booster at these clinics. Children under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian. People can help to alleviate clinic waiting time by downloading Vaccine Information Statements and consent forms at www.louisvilleky.gov/health and by filling the forms out ahead of time and bringing them to the clinic. People are also urged to wear either a short sleeved or sleeveless shirt – something that gives nurses quick and easy access to the arm.

The Department of Public Health and Wellness gave more than 5,400 H1N1 immunizations at clinics

from January 4 through January 22. To date the department has directly immunized more than 77,000 children and adults at public and school clinics and has distributed another 220,000 doses to 350 hospitals and health care providers and to Family Health Centers and the Park DuValle Community Health Center .

The department has also distributed vaccine to, Walmart, K-Mart, CVS Pharmacy, Kroger Little Clinics, Walgreens, Rite-Aid, and Meijer. These stores may charge an administrative fee for the vaccine. A list of these stores along with the administrative fee each of them charges is posted on our website at www.louisvilleky.gov/health
