From the Harford County Health Department:
Bel Air, MD – February 23, 2010 – On Saturday, February 27, 2010, the Harford County Health Department will conduct another public, walk-up H1N1 flu vaccination clinic at the Harford Mall. Both injectable and mist forms of the H1N1 vaccine will be available at no cost to the general public between 10:00am and 2:00pm, on a “no-appointment, walk-up” basis near the indoor entrance to Macy’s Department Store.
The Harford County Health Department continues to reach out to local communities, having implemented H1N1 flu vaccination clinics throughout the county in Aberdeen, Bel Air, Belcamp, Cardiff, Forest Hill, Havre de Grace and Jarrettsville, as well as on a “walk-in” basis at their Woodbridge operations center on regularly scheduled dates throughout recent months.
Harford County Health Officer Susan Kelly states, “Our last H1N1 vaccination clinic at Harford Mall was a tremendous success even though it occurred on the date of the first major snowfall, here. We hope that the convenience offered to shoppers by our being there will result in another great turnout this Saturday. We want to remind the public that H1N1 is expected to stay in circulation for at least a few more months, and perhaps longer. The very best protection against serious illness that may result from H1N1, is vaccination that is safe and that has proven very effective.”
