Flu vaccine to be available all week

Free flu vaccines for at-risk individuals will be available at county clinics Monday-Friday.

Public health officials, who have a limited amount of vaccines, are asking people to call their doctors first. Here’s a rundown of the clinics set for this week:

– Central: 5202 University Ave., San Diego, (619) 229-5400.

– North Central: 5055 Ruffin Road, San Diego, (858) 573-7300.

The clinics run from 8 a.m. to 11 a.m. and from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. More
information is available by calling 211 or going to the Web site sdiz.org.

The top priorities for public health officials are children at least 6
months old and pregnant women.

People who care for infants, those who have underlying health problems, young adults up to 24, health care workers and first responders are also recommended to get H1N1 vaccines.

Across San Diego County, about 1.7 million residents fall into at-risk
categories.

“We are asking the public to be calm, cooperative and to have
patience,” Dr. Wilma Wooten, the county’s top public health official, said at a news conference Saturday.
Countywide, 27 people have died from the H1N1 virus. Hundreds of others have been hospitalized. Many of the victims had underlying medical conditions, but others were children with no such history.

Schools are expected to start vaccinations soon.
