6,000 vaccinated against H1N1 at Alameda County clinics

5-city effort aimed at preventing disease for those most vulnerable

The Alameda County Public Health Department vaccinated more than 6,000 people against the H1N1 virus at five clinics throughout the county Saturday.

The clinics were held at the Alameda County Fairgrounds in Pleasanton and also in the cities of Oakland, Alameda, Fremont and Hayward. They were operated in partnership with city and county fire departments, and other emergency personnel.

The vaccines were given to those most at risk of complications from exposure to the virus, such as pregnant women, young children, and people with chronic medical conditions or compromised immune systems, according to officials.

For H1N1 the community and schools should look at www.purgo-creations.com They have a wrist band sanitizer that is Used at Stanford Medical Center,John Muir,John Hopkins and many European health ministries and schools.This is the best I have seen for individual hand washing and the elimination of bacterial agents.
