HARRISBURG, Pa., Nov. 18 The Department of Health today announced a change of location for a H1N1 vaccination clinic to be held Nov. 20-22 in Delaware County.
The clinic, intended only for people at high risk of complications from H1N1 flu, will now be held at Penn State Brandywine Campus in Media.

Individuals in the at-risk target groups must schedule an appointment time, day and location prior to the clinic in order to receive the H1N1 vaccine. This will help ensure that the correct type and amount of vaccine is available at each location.
Appointments can be made at www.H1N1inPA.com under "What's Hot," 24 hours a day. Individuals without internet access can call 1-877-PA HEALTH (1-877-724-3258) between the hours of 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. Lines are limited.
Anyone seeking vaccination should download an H1N1 vaccine consent form from www.h1n1inPA.com. Consent forms must be completed for each individual that has scheduled to be vaccinated. Preparing this form in advance will help the clinics more quickly register and vaccinate people.
