Fayette flu clinic this weekend

If you're in one of the groups at high risk from H1N1 flu, the Lexington-Fayette County Health Department will offer another opportunity to get a vaccination this weekend.

Health department crews will hold clinics from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., or until supplies run out Saturday at the Lexington Christian Academy, 450 West Reynolds Road, and at Bryan Station High School, 201 Eastin Road.

The shots are free.

The clinics will target these high-risk groups: pregnant women; healthy people ages 6 months through 24 years; those who live with or care for children under 6 months of age; individuals ages 25-64 who have chronic health problems or compromised immunity; health-care and emergency services workers.

If you have a fever, or you are allergic to eggs, you can't get a shot on Saturday.
