Free H1N1 vaccination clinics to be held in Amherst this week

University Health Services and the town of Amherst will be hosting free walk-in H1N1 flu vaccination clinics beginning this week. The first clinic will take place Wednesday, Dec. 2, from noon until 6 p.m. at the University of Massachusetts Campus Center Auditorium. A second clinic will follow on Saturday, Dec. 12 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Bangs Community Center, located at 70 Boltwood Walk, Amherst.

The clinics will be open to those ages 6 months to 65, and will be provided at no cost while vaccination supplies last.

The Centers for Disease Control and the Massachusetts Department of Public Health have recommended vaccination for everyone in the virus’ target groups, including those who have had a recent flu-like illness. However, anyone who is currently ill and has a fever cannot be vaccinated.

Forms and information will be available at the door, but to save time at either of the clinics, one can plan ahead of time. First, download the registration form and vaccine information from www.umass.edu/uhs or www.amherstma.gov. Then, photocopy both sides of your insurance card.

Be sure to bring the completed form, your insurance card and card copies to the clinic.
