Health Officials Target Specific Age Group For H1N1 Shot

Health Officials Target Specific Age Group For H1N1 Shot
If you're still looking to get a free H1N1 shot, you're in luck; the Sioux Falls Health Department is holding a vaccination clinic Tuesday.

The clinic is just one of seven in South Dakota Tuesday.  Most have already closed their doors for the day, but there is still time to make it to Kenny Anderson Community Center in east Sioux Falls.

The clinic goes until 6 p.m. and officials hope to give out 750 doses of the mist and shot. They say with a third wave of the virus expected, those who haven't gotten the shot should get vaccinated as soon as possible. Health officials are hoping age groups they haven't seen very much of so far, like people 19 to 24 years old, show up to clinics in the coming weeks.

"It's been our lowest turnout group and they're one of the highest age groups to people that we've see hospitalized as we look at local data, South Dakota data," Public Health Manager Sandy Frentz said.

People of all ages can get a free shot in the next couple days.  In fact, eight clinics are being held Wednesday in communities such as Rapid City and Watertown.
