Two new categories of high-risk individuals will be eligible for their H1N1 immunizations this week.

Starting tomorrow, either both parents or one parent and a caregiver of infants under six months of age will be able to receive their vaccine, as well as children under 10 with chronic health conditions, according to Alberta Health Services.

AHS requires parents to bring proof of age for their children and infants, and caregivers will need ID and a letter from the parent confirming their role.

Proof of age and a record of prescriptions or medical conditions will also be required for those kids under 10 with chronic health conditions.

The clinics will also continue to offer vaccinations to pregnant women and children between the ages of six months and five years as an extension of last week’s vaccina­­tions.

There are six immunization clinics set up throughout the city. They are located at Stampede Park, the Olympic Oval, Avenida Village, Brentwood Mall, Richmond Road Diagnostic Centre and Whitehorn EMS services centre.
