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.

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:
