Additional public H1N1 vaccine clinics were announced by the Placer County Department of Health and Human Services recently. The free clinics will be held through the month of January on the following dates: • Tuesday, Jan. 26, Placer County Clinic, 8665 Salmon Ave., Kings Beach; 9:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. and 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. • Tuesday, Jan. 26, William Jessup University, 333 Sunset Blvd., Rocklin, from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. • Thursday, Jan. 28, Adventure Christian Church, 6401 Stanford Ranch Road, Roseville, from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. All community clinics are open to Placer County residents. There is no cost for any of the vaccinations. Children who need a second dose may also attend the community clinics, or may hear from their schools that clinics have been planned for them. All residents are encouraged to be vaccinated against H1N1 flu, sometimes called the “swine flu,” and those in the “target groups” for this vaccine are strongly encouraged to be vaccinated. Individuals can also contact their health care provider to see if they have vaccine available. ~ Staff report
