The Panhandle Health District will provide H1N1 vaccinations Saturday by appointment to preschool children, starting at 6 months of age, in clinics in Idaho’s five northern counties.
Supplies that just arrived also permitted the health district to provide vaccine to emergency response workers, pediatricians, obstetricians, gynecologists and family practice doctors, a news release said.
Some 1,200 doses are available. The health district will take appointments Thursday from 5:30-8:30 p.m. on its toll-free appointment line — (877) 415-5225.
The clinics will be open from 10 a.m. to noon in Boundary, Benewah and Shoshone counties; 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. in Bonner County; and 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in Kootenai County. Callers will be given clinic locations when they make appointments, the release said. The health district will schedule more clinics as more vaccine arrives, with the next one expected to take place Dec. 12.
