Fillmore County Public Health will be offering a mass H1N1 vaccination clinic for the priority groups listed below at Harmony Community Center located at 225 3rd Avenue SW in Harmony, MN, on Wednesday, December 16, 2009, from 4:00 PM to 7:00 PM.

Vaccine information and forms may be printed from the Fillmore County website at http://www..co.fillmore.mn.us/ and either completed in advance of the clinic or completed onsite. Individuals arriving with completed forms will be moved more quickly through the H1N1 clinic. It is also recommended that interested patrons travel light and wear clothing that will increase the speed of receiving vaccination such as a short-sleeve shirt.

At the direction of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Minnesota Department of Health (MDH), only individuals under the age of 65 listed in the priority groups below will eligible to receive vaccine on Wednesday, December 16th:

• Pregnant women

• People who live with or care for children under the age of six months.

• All children, adolescents, and young adults aged 6 months through 24 years.

• People aged 25 to 64 who are at risk of complications due to an underlying medical or immune system condition.

• Health care workers and emergency personnel.

Fillmore County Public Health (FCPH) asks for your patience and cooperation with the local H1N1 vaccination process. Vaccine continues to roll out slowly and priority groups will be eligible for vaccine at specific times. Fillmore County Public Health asks that you watch your local media and the Fillmore County website at http://www.co.fillmore.mn.us/ for information regarding specific target group vaccination. If you do not qualify for a specific H1N1 vaccination clinic, you will be turned away until a later date. CDC and MDH continue to assure Fillmore County Public Health that there will eventually be enough vaccine for everyone who wants it.
