Sacramento County Public Health is sponsoring a series of H1N1 flu vaccine clinics throughout the county, and First Covenant Church in Rancho Cordova will host a clinic Nov. 23 from 3 to 7 p.m.
Priority groups will be given a flu shot at the clinic, and Sacramento County said priority groups include pregnant women, healthcare workers, childcare workers caring for children under 6 months, children and young adults age 6 months to 24 years and adults age 24 to 64 years with underlying medical conditions.
The vaccine is free of charge, but due to the vaccine’s limited availability, the administrators urge anyone planning on visiting the clinic to first check their website to check the flu shot’s availability.
