You can also get more information by calling the Lake County H1N1 hotline at (440) 918-5469 and (440) 918-5470.

The LCGHD asks that only residents who lives within the designated areas come to the clinics on the specific dates.

CDC Priority groups include: Pregnant women; Household contacts and caregivers for children younger than 6 months of age; Healthcare and emergency medical services personnel; people ages 25 through 64 years old who have health conditions associated with higher risk of medical complications from influenza; and all people from 6 months through 24 years of age.

School-aged children obtaining their vaccination at their school do not need to attend.

The LCGHD notes that children 9 years of age and under are recommended to obtain two doses separated 4 weeks apart.

People in the CDC priority groups will be evaluated and clinic staff will make the final decision as to which type of vaccine (nasal spray or injectable) they will administer.
