We now have some H1N1 vaccine available for patient dispensing (limited supply). We have provided vaccine to the highest priority groups these past 2 weeks- namely health care workers, their children, pregnant mothers and students. The next priority list is persons under age 65 with significant medical diagnosis such as asthma, immune suppression, diabetes or cardiomyopathy. If you are in this group and wish to be vaccinated please contact
our office and request an H1N1 vaccination appointment with our clinical staff.
The final group to be vaccinated is persons 65 and over. Obviously we would recommend those with lung conditions, diabetes and/or weakened hearts be given priority over the "healthy elderly". If you are in this group you are also encouraged to contact us to arrange a vaccination appointment. We anticipate more vaccine over the ensuing weeks and fully plan on vaccinating all patients in our practice before the flu season is over. If you are in the lowest priority group, feel free to request the vaccine at your scheduled appointment as you see us this winter and spring.
