The Priority Groups for H1N1 vaccine are:
– Pregnant women
– People living with or caring for infants under six months of age
-Emergency medical services personnel and health care workers
– Children and young adults from six months through 24 years
– People aged 25 through 64 years with chronic medical conditions like heart or lung disease, asthma, diabetes, or weakened immune systems
A list of dates and locations can be found on the Public Health website at www.publichealth.lacounty.gov or by calling the LA County information line at 2-1-1 from any landline or cell phone. The vaccine clinic schedule will be released two weeks at a time. Residents are urged to check back often if they do not immediately find a clinic that is conveniently located near them.
