Health District to move H1N1 family clinic to the Spokane Veteran’s Arena

SPOKANE, Wash. -  The Spokane Regional Health District announced today that they are moving an H1N1 (swine) influenza, public vaccination clinic from the Central YMCA across the street to the Arena.

The move is designed to accommodate more vaccinations of people who meet the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's (CDC) criteria for prioritized vaccination. Only those who are among the CDC's prioritized groups will qualify for the free vaccine.  

"During this week's phone-in appointments for the nasal spray version of the vaccine, it was apparent that many people in our community are interested in protecting themselves from the H1N1 virus," said Dr. Joel McCullough, Health Officer for the Spokane Regional Health District. "Our goal is to vaccinate as many high-risk people, as quickly as is possible; the move to the arena helps us accomplish that goal."  

About 4,000 doses of the nasal spray vaccine are expected to be available during the clinic. The Health District hopes to have a small amount of the flu shot vaccine which is suitable for other high risk groups who cannot receive the nasal spray version of the vaccine.

In addition to the clinic at the Arena, the Health District has several additional clinics planned:
