Two immunization clinics canceled

October 16, 2009


Because of an insufficient supply of the H1N1 vaccine, two of 10 community immunizations clinics have been canceled.

The Lawrence-Douglas County Health Department will not have a clinic on Oct. 30, and Kansas University will not have its first clinic, which was also scheduled for Oct. 30.

Lisa Horn, health department spokeswoman, said department officials expect to receive 4,000 doses by its first clinic next Wednesday. She said she also expected to receive an additional 150 doses for fire and medical staff and another 500 doses for Lawrence Memorial Hospital.

The first community clinic is scheduled from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. Wednesday at Haskell Indian Nations University’s Coffin Sports Complex, 155 Indian Ave.

The department has scheduled three at the Douglas County 4-H Fairgrounds, 2110 Harper St.:

• 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. Oct. 28

• 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. Oct. 29

• 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Oct. 31

The department will provide the vaccine at no cost.

Kansas University also has scheduled swine flu immunization clinics for students, staff, faculty and retirees. The clinics will be from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. every Friday from Nov. 6 through Dec. 4, except the weekend after Thanksgiving.

The immunization clinics on the KU campus will be at different locations. Here’s the schedule:

• Nov. 6 at Mrs. E’s cafeteria in Lewis Hall

• Nov. 13 at the Kansas Union Ballroom

• Nov. 20 at the Ambler Student Recreation Fitness Center

• Dec. 4 at the Kansas Union Ballroom
