Washington County Public Health officials want to clear up some misinformation about the recently arrived H1N1 vaccine. Program Director Chrystal Woller says the vaccine is created similar to the seasonal vaccine and is just as safe. She says there is no more risk to getting the H1N1 vaccine than there is with the seasonal one. Woller says Public Health will hold a mass clinic for immunization Wednesday (10/21) at Mid Prairie Middle School in Kalona from 2-6:30 pm or until the supply runs out.
