HRM to see end of H1N1 clinics

The last H1N1 vaccination clinics in the Halifax area will be held early next week.

The last H1N1 vaccination clinics in the Halifax area will be held early next week.

Capital Health spokesman John Gillis said anyone who has not received the shot should plan to attend one of several clinics scheduled throughout HRM Monday and Tuesday at several local high schools.

Students and staff can be vaccinated during the school day, and the clinics will be open to the general public during the evening.

Monday’s clinics will be held at Sir John A. Macdonald High School (4-8:30 p.m.) and J.L. Ilsley High School (3-8:30 p.m.). Tuesday’s clinics are at Duncan MacMillan High School (3-6:30 p.m.) and Auburn Drive High School (4-8:30 p.m.).

“We’re looking at the data, and we’ll determine from that if there are any pockets of people we may have missed. If we do additional clinics in the new year, they’ll be very targeted,” Gillis said.

Officials estimate more than half the population of the Capital Health District has now been vaccinated. Although the large-scale clinics are shutting down for now, the shot will still be available in doctors’ offices, walk-in clinics, and through some employers.
