Free vaccine offered to priority groups first
Dec 8, 2009
From staff reports

Ohio University will hold its second 2009 H1N1 vaccination clinic for priority group* members of Ohio University students, faculty, staff and dependents on Friday and Saturday.

There will be approximately 200 doses of injectable 2009 H1N1 vaccine at each clinic. When the doses are gone, the clinic will be shut down. The shipment does not include the mist vaccine.

This will be the last 2009 H1N1 vaccine clinic to target only priority groups. Future clinics, which will be scheduled as additional supplies of the vaccine become available, will be open to all members of the university community and their dependants.

The times and locations of the clinics are:

  • Date: Friday, Dec. 11
    Location: Charles J. Ping Student Recreation Center
    Time: 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. (or until the vaccine is gone for this clinic)

  • Date: Saturday, Dec. 12
    Location: Human Resources and Training Center
    Time: 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. (or until the vaccine is gone for this clinic)

*Priority groups as defined by the Centers for Disease Control include the following:

  • Pregnant women

  • Household contacts and caregivers for children younger than 6 months of age

  • Healthcare workers and medical service personnel, including medical students

  • Anyone 6 months through 24 years of age (Children 6 months to 9 years who received their first 2009 H1N1 vaccine on Nov. 1 are due for their second dose)

  • All individuals under the age of 65 with the following high risk factors:
    • chronic pulmonary (including asthma),
    • cardiovascular (excluding hypertension),
    • renal, hepatic,
    • cognitive,
    • neurologic/neuromuscular,
    • hematologic, or metabolic (e.g., diabetes) disorders;
    • immunosuppression, including that caused by medications or HIV;
    • long-term aspirin therapy

There is no pre-registration and no charge for this vaccination clinic. In order to protect those in the community who the CDC has determined are most vulnerable first, please do not come to this clinic if you are not a member of the above groups. Vaccine from this supply will be administered to priority group recipients on a first come, first served basis.
