Health Department Expands Weekend H1N1 Vaccination Clinics To Cover People with Underlying Health Conditions

November 10, 2009 – The Health Department announced today that it is further expanding its weekend H1N1 vaccination clinics to cover a broader range of New Yorkers. Starting this weekend – November 14th and 15th – vaccine will be available at temporary centers in all five boroughs for anyone 4 to 24 years old, anyone who is pregnant, anyone in close contact with newborns, and people age 25 to 64 with a medical condition that makes influenza more dangerous.

The weekend clinics, launched on November 7th in all five boroughs, are designed primarily to vaccinate middle and high school students, along with elementary school students who have not been vaccinated by private providers or in their schools. Because the first weekend’s clinics did not reach capacity, the City is opening the weekend clinics to adults with underlying health conditions as well. The expansion means that the following groups will now be able to receive vaccine at the weekend clinics:

  • Pregnant women
  • Anyone 4 years through 24 years of age
  • Persons 25 through 64 years of age who have underlying health conditions that increases risk of severe illness or complications*
  • Anyone who lives with or cares for children less than 6 months old

*These conditions include asthma, diabetes, chronic heart and lung conditions, kidney failure, or a weakened immune system.

The weekend vaccination clinics will continue over four weekends in November and December. Each weekend vaccination center is designed to accommodate up to 500 people per hour and will be open from 9 AM to 6 PM on Saturdays and from 9 AM to 5 PM on Sundays, but lines are possible. Anyone under 18 must present a signed parental consent form and anyone under 16 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.

To prevent overcrowding and long lines, City officials are asking eligible New Yorkers to find the date and location of the vaccination center nearest their home, and report to that site on the appropriate weekend. People with computer access can find their designated weekend site by typing their zip code into the locator at nyc.gov/flu. Schedules and locations are also available through 311.
