Fillmore County Public Health (FCPH) will be offering H1N1influenza immunizations via appointment and community vaccination clinics during March 2010. According to health educator, Brenda Leigh Pohlman, FCPH has provided over 2,800 H1N1 immunizations to the public since October 2009. Pohlman stated, "There is plenty of H1N1 vaccine available locally and Minnesota Department of Health is still encouraging Minnesotans to seek out vaccinations because the H1N1 virus continues to circulate and has the potential to cause illness."
