The West Allis Health Department has scheduled an H1N1 flu vaccine clinic for 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday in the auxiliary gym at Nathan Hale High School, 11601 W. Lincoln Ave.
The following people are eligible to receive the vaccine:
• pregnant women;
• household members who have contact with infants younger than 6 months old;
• children ages 6 months to 4 years; and
• people age 5 to 64 with medical conditions putting them at higher risk for flu-related complications.
The nasal and injectable vaccines are available at no charge. People with allergy to eggs or seasonal flu vaccine should not take the swine flu vaccine. People will also be turned away if they show signs up fever, cough, sore throat, diarrhea or vomiting, according to a Health Department news release.
Attendees should anticipate long lines and be patient while awaiting the vaccine due to a shortage of vaccine.
Information on future H1N1 clinics can be found on the city's Web site, ci.west-allis.wi.us or by calling on the Health Department's flu hot line at (414) 302-8670.
