A dose of Swine Flu vaccine is shown at the Dekalb County Health Department in Decatur, Ga., Wednesday, Oct. 7, 2009.
The second shipment of swine flu vaccines has arrived in San Diego and will be distributed this weekend.
The vaccine will be administered at the County’s six public health centers and one vaccination clinic. Additional doses are going to hospitals, community clinics and to healthcare emergency workers.
Health care providers, pregnant women and children (pre-school, elementary and middle school) as well as individuals who live in households with children younger than six months of age will receive priority when it comes to receiving the vaccine.
There are six County Public Health Centers and one County Immunization Clinic. These seven locations are located throughout San Diego County. The H1N1 flu vaccine is available at these locations for people in the high risk groups for complications from H1N1 flu.
