Lexington health officials are hoping to vaccinate at least 6,000 people Saturday at two H1N1 flu-shot clinics: at Paul Laurence Dunbar High School, 1600 Man o' War Boulevard, and Bryan Station High School, 201 Eastin Road.
The clinics will operate from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. or until supplies run out.
Clinics are targeting priority groups, those most at risk for getting H1N1. They are pregnant women, children and young people 6 months to 24 years old, people who live with or care for children younger than 6 months, people ages 25 to 64 with chronic health disorders or compromised immune systems, and health care and emergency services workers.
There are 10 more weekend clinics scheduled in Fayette County through the end of the year.
Contact your local health department for vaccination clinics near you.
