An increased availability of the vaccine has allowed county officials to offer the shot to anyone, not just priority groups. Health Department officials say registered health care providers and many local pharmacies are offering the vaccine to the public. The vaccines are free through Mesa County Health Department but there may be a fee if you get the vaccine from health care providers or pharmacies.
Regular immunization and vaccine services will be served on a walk-in basis Monday, Dec. 14 and Tuesday, Dec. 15. All other routine immunization activities at Mesa County Health Department will be canceled for Wednesday, Dec. 16.
Health officials say H1N1 vaccination will be limited through the end of the year due to the holidays and a mandatory County furlough day but that H1N1 vaccination services will continue in the new year as supplies allow.
