Suffolk lands 30K doses of H1N1 vaccine
More than 30,000 doses of the swine flu vaccine are now in the hands of Suffolk health officials, who say they?ll dole out the shots only to at-risk residents.
Suffolk?s Department of Health Services says its 30,500 doses is not a lot. Only pregnant women, health care workers, those with serious health concerns, caretakers of young children and anyone 6 months to 24-years-old will be eligible to receive the shots at doctors? offices or health department clinics.
Suffolk parents who want to vaccinate their children say they hope the new shipment means the vaccine will be more accessible to them.
