Can a person who lives in Tonganoxie get an H1N1 vaccine in Douglas County when it becomes available? I work at Lawrence Memorial Hospital and was able to get the vaccine there, but can my husband get one in Douglas County as well? I was told he wouldn’t be able to. If not, whom should he contact?

Lisa Horn, Lawrence-Douglas County Health Department spokeswoman, said the department’s immunization clinics are open only to Douglas County residents. “However, providers and others that have received doses — such as Lawrence Memorial Hospital and Lawrence-Douglas County Fire Medical — can give the vaccine to eligible clients or workers, regardless of county,” she said. To find a schedule of swine flu clinics, she suggests contacting the county health department. Information for Tonganoxie residents can be found on the Leavenworth County’s Web site at
