City vaccinates almost 51,000 against H1N1
November 8, 2009 (CHICAGO) -- Chicago Department of Public Health officials say they've vaccinated almost 51,000 people against the swine flu in seven days.
More than 8,200 doses of the vaccine were delivered Saturday. The health department has seven vaccine sites across the city.
The vaccinations are available for free to Chicago residents at increased risk for flu and flu complications.
Those considered high-risk include pregnant women, people 6 months to 24 years of age, people who live with or care for infants younger than 6 months and adults with certain health conditions.
Most of the clinics are open on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays. No appointments are needed, and the vaccines are given on a first come-first-served basis.
