The Signal Hill Park Community Center, 1780 E. Hill Street, will host a clinic providing free H1N1 vaccinations on Tuesday, Feb. 23 from 10am to noon.
The vaccine is available for anyone over six months of age for whom the vaccine is not medically contraindicated and who has no other usual source of medical care.
Some individuals are at greater risk of flu infection and should make a special effort to get vaccinated. Those who fit into the following categories and have not yet been vaccinated are recommended to protect themselves from the flu and from complications that can result from having the flu. These categories are:
• Pregnant women
• People who live with or care for infants under six months old
• People who work in health care or emergency medical services
• People aged six months through 24 years
• People aged 25 through 64 years who have chronic health problems or a compromised immune system
