The clinics are for high priority groups only. Those include pregnant women, parents of children under six months of age, and kids and young people from six months to 24 years old. Health care and emergency medical personnel are at high risk, too. Since early November, the county has offered school-based H1N1 vaccination clinics. Officials say they will continue those clinics along with the new public clinics. They also say additional vaccines are expected to arrive later this month. Once that happens, more public clinics will be scheduled and they'll be open to all Placer County residents.
The upcoming round of clinics will be:
- Monday, December 14, from 11 am to 3 pm, at the Rocklin Sunset Center, 2650 Sunset Blvd., Rocklin, CA
- Wednesday, December 16, from 11 am to 3 pm, at the North Tahoe Event Center, 8318 North Lake Boulevard, Kings Beach, CA
- Thursday, December 17, from noon to 4 pm, at the Roseville Maidu Community Center, 1550 Maidu Dr., Roseville, CA
- Friday, December 18, from 9 am to 1 pm, at the Gold Country Fairgorunds, 1273 High Street, Auburn, CA (This is a drive-through clinic; patients don't even need to get out of their cars).
