Swine flu clinic scheduled in Coalville

By Patrick Parkinson, of The Record staff

Summit County health officials have about 900 H1N1 flu vaccines to distribute Thursday at a clinic in Coalville. The injectable and nasal-mist vaccines will be available at the Summit County Health Department at 85 N. 50 East beginning at 10 a.m., Health Department spokeswoman Katie Mullaly said. There are about 800 injectable vaccines and 100 doses of the mist, Mullaly said in a telephone interview Tuesday. Thursday’s clinic is for all children and young adults between the ages of 6 months and 24 years old, parents and direct caregivers of infants under 6 months old, pregnant women, and adults between the ages of 25 and 64 with health conditions. "We’re hoping to do a clinic in Kamas next week," Mullaly said, adding that more vaccines are expected to arrive in the coming weeks. Health officials will only be giving first doses of the vaccine to children. Due to high demand for those, Mullaly said booster shots for children 9 years old and younger are not yet available.
