LAYTON -- Davis County Health Department's H1N1 vaccination clinics are now open to the county's general public.
According to Lewis Garrett, director of the Davis County Health Department, "The number of people requesting the vaccine in the targeted populations has declined both last week and this week. As a result of that declining demand and the steadily increasing supply of vaccine, we are now able to make the H1N1 vaccine available for our general population."
The Davis County Health Department is running H1N1 vaccination clinics on Wednesday and Thursday from 3 p.m. - 8 p.m. at the Davis Conference Center on 800 W. Heritage Park Blvd. in Layton. Tickets are still available and will be handed out starting at 10 a.m. each day at the clinic location only.
"The targeted populations are still encouraged to come in to any of our specially scheduled H1N1 vaccination clinics along with the general public," he said. "Also, parents and caregivers of children 6 months to 9 years old are reminded to get their children their H1N1 booster vaccination when there's been at least 28 days from the first dose."
The targeted populations include:
- Pregnant women
- People who live with or care for children younger than 6 months of age
- Health care or emergency medical personnel with patient contact
- Children age 6 months to 24 years of age
- Persons 64 years of age and under with chronic medical conditions associated with higher risk of medical problems from influenza
