Dancers being used to attract H1N1 vaccine
RIVERSIDE, Calif. (KABC) -- Riverside County health officials are trying to generate more interest in their H1N1 swine flu campaign. They have now added sidewalk performers outside county health clinics.
The performers dance and twirl signs pointing people in the direction of the clinic so they can get their H1N1 vaccinations.
Riverside County is also advertising free vaccinations by radio, newspaper and on local movies screens. There's been a drop in swine flu illnesses. However, officials say there could be another wave of infections and people should be prepared.
Health officials estimate that five million Californians have contracted swine flu and more than 500 have died.
