The Alameda County Public Health Department announced this week that it has scheduled five H1N1 vaccination clinics across the county on Dec. 12, including one that will be held at the county fairgrounds.
The clinic is open to county residents who are at the highest risk of complications from exposure to the swine flu, including:
* pregnant women
* people who live with or provide care for infants under the age of 6 months (e.g., parents, siblings and childcare providers)
* children and young adults aged 6 months to 24 years old (note: children 9 and under will need a second vaccine in at least three to four weeks)
* all others aged 25-64 who have chronic medical conditions that put them at higher risk for flu-related complications
The Pleasanton clinic, to be held in the fairgrounds' Hall of Commerce, will operate from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. or until the supply depletes. Enter the fairgrounds at Gate 12 on Valley Avenue, off of Bernal Avenue.
