Tennessee offers H1N1 vaccine to everyone


Increasing Vaccine Supply Meeting Local Demands

Tennessee Department of HealthNASHVILLE – The Tennessee Department of Health has expanded H1N1 flu vaccine availability to the general public. Steadily increasing supply of the vaccine has enabled county health departments to allow anyone who wants to get vaccinated to do so. The vaccine is provided at no charge to patients.

“There are still many who have not had a chance to get vaccinated up until this point,” said Kelly L. Moore, MD, MPH, medical director of the state immunization program. “Although we continue to work to reach people in the target risk groups, it is now possible to begin providing vaccine to everyone who requests it. Public clinics are being scheduled every week as more vaccine becomes available and the department continues to distribute the vaccine supply efficiently to a wide array of health departments and private providers, including pharmacies.” «Read the rest of this article»
