MESA COUNTY, Colo. (KKCO) - If you're six months or older and want an H1N1 vaccination, you can now get it in Mesa County.

There are 500 appointments available for next Wednesday, Dec. 9. The vaccines are free through the Health Department. Registered health care providers and local pharmacies will also receive the vaccine, the Health Department says.

Regular immunization offerings at the Health Department will be canceled for next Wednesday.
