A series of five mass H1N1 vaccination events will take place in San Diego County beginning this Friday, according to San Diego County Health and Human Services Agency (HHSA). The vaccinations are available to everyone, regardless of age or medical background. The first clinic is scheduled for this Friday at Qualcomm Stadium.
“This is a true public health effort by the County to get people vaccinated, and by getting your H1N1 vaccine, you’re not only protecting yourself but protecting your loved ones and neighbors,” said Dianne Jacob, Chairwoman of the San Diego County Board of Supervisors.
“We would like to remind county residents that H1N1 is still very active in our communities,” said Jacob.
The deaths of 62 people in San Diego County have been linked to the swine flu outbreak, and 786 people have been hospitalized since last April, according to HHSA.
