The North Shore Health Department has received a shipment of vaccine for children under age 3 and has scheduled an H1N1 flu clinic for children age 6 months through age 2 (under 36 months). The clinic will be held at the Brown Deer Village Hall on Monday, November 9, from 2:00-5:00 PM.
Baby doses of the H1N1 injectable vaccine are available for children 6 months--2 years or children age 2-3 who have a medical condition making them ineligible for the nasal mist and more vulnerable to severe illness. All H1N1 clinics are scheduled based on vaccine availability and guidelines established by the CDC and the State of Wisconsin. For this reason, others outside of this age group will not be able to be vaccinated at this particular clinic. In addition, no other vaccines will be available at this clinic and H1N1 will be available as long as supplies last.
The North Shore Health Department has scheduled an H1N1 clinic for populations in the higher risk groups for severe disease as determined by the CDC and the State of Wisconsin. This clinic is in collaboration with the Shorewood/Whitefish Bay Health Department.
The target groups for vaccination are based on vaccine availability and those most at risk. As the vaccine supply increases, it is likely that the target groups will be expanded. Please check frequently for updates as changes will be posted as they occur.
