The Madison County Health Department is offering H1N1 vaccine as a nasal spray at its Richmond and Berea clinics from 11 a.m. to 6: 30 p.m. Oct. 23.
The walk-in clinics are designed for people in a priority group, those at the greatest risk of infection. They are: health care workers who provide direct patient care; parents and caregivers of infants younger than 6 months; healthy children 2 to 4 years old; day care workers; and people who care for children in their homes.
Although pregnant women and those with other chronic diseases are also at risk for H1N1, it is not recommended that they receive the vaccine as a nasal spray. For information in Richmond, call (859) 623-7312. In Berea, call (859) 986-1192. The clinics are at 214 Boggs Lane, Richmond, and 1001 Ace Drive, Berea. The vaccines are free.
