Flu vaccines arrive; Pitkin County clinics set
December 2, 2009
ASPEN – Pitkin County has finally received enough seasonal and H1N1 flu vaccine to hold public clinics for anyone who wants the shots.
The seasonal flu shot will be offered Monday, Dec. 7 from 2 to 6 p.m. at the county Health and Human Services Building in Aspen. The cost is $20 for adults and $10 for children.
An H1N1 clinic will take place Wednesday, Dec. 9 from 2 to 6 p.m., also at Health and Human Services. The shots will be free.
The county was forced to cancel clinics for the seasonal flu early in the fall after a big turnout for the first clinic used up most of the supply. The H1N1 vaccine had been doled out by the state to the county is small increments, providing only enough for high-priority recipients.
