PCHA concludes H1N1 public immunization clinics
“There was an excellent turnout at our final public clinic of the year,” said Janice Kaffer, vice president of clinical services for the Pictou County Health Authority. “People recognize that the best way to prevent the spread of H1N1 is to get immunized.”
Since October 28 more than 24,288 people have been immunized in Pictou County, representing 53% of the population. Public Health Services held 54 separate clinics in 13 locations around the county. The clinics averaged 100 immunizations an hour with one clinic immunizing 1043 individuals.
With vaccine supplies increasing, other health professionals and organizations are also playing a vital role in delivering the vaccine. Seventeen family doctors in Pictou County have received vaccine and vaccine is also being distributed to local long term care facilities and organizations like VON.
Pictou County residents can go to www.pcha.nshealth.ca for the latest information on H1N1.
