H1N1 Vaccine in Wichita County

Yesterday evening, Stan and I made our way to the Wichita County Health department to receive our shots to keep us free from this deadly virus that has just claimed another death in Kansas. The department remained open until 6:00 so that more people could receive their vaccine and not have to miss any work in order to do it. Now, I am pleased to say that both of our daughters and their parents are immunized!

The health department will be giving out more shots today, Friday, until around 11:00 a.m. After that, you can come back in next week and be immunized.

Just under 100 people took advantage of the free clinic with expanded hours yesterday! That's alot of shots for only one R.N. to dispense in a day's time! Thank you, Marvel!!!

Marvel also cautions people NOT to stop washing your hands just because you have been immunized against H1N1. There are still plenty of people who are not vaccinated for various reasons. It is up to all of us to do whatever we can to protect them by not passing the germs everywhere. In public locations where sanitary hand wipes are provided, USE THEM! Clean the handle of your shopping cart, etc. The virus is still amongst us!!!

Stay well!!!
