NorthBay Healthcare Offers Free H1N1 Vaccinations Today

NorthBay Healthcare will sponsor a trio of free drive-through H1N1 vaccination clinics in Vacaville and Fairfield Wednesday, Nov. 25.

Vaccine is offered free of charge, regardless of health plan affiliation.

Vaccinations begin at 8 a.m. and continue until 2 p.m., or until the supply of approximately 1,500 doses is exhausted. Both injections and the nasal flu mist vaccine are available.

The drive-through clinics will be conducted at these locations of the NorthBay Center for Primary Care:
• 421 Nut Tree Road, Vacaville
• 2458 Hilborn Road, Fairfield
• 5140 Business Center Drive, Green Valley

The one-day drive-through clinics are open to all people except individuals showing any signs of illness, including respiratory infection, fever, coughing or flu- or cold-like symptoms.

Clinic officials suggest wearing light clothing, or short-sleeve shirts, making it easier to receive the injections.

Another way to shorten the time it takes to get through the line is to fill out a consent form in advance. Those wishing to be vaccinated can find the consent forms for adults and children online at newsroom.northbay.org/fluconsentform.
