The H1N1 flu vaccine will now be available—and locally–for all those over the age of six months who want to get vaccinated. The San Bernardino County Department of Public Health, in conjunction with the Bear Valley Unified School District, will be offering the H1N1 vaccine free of charge on Monday, January 25. The free opportunity takes place at the Meadow Park offices of the Big Bear Valley Recreation and Park District, located at 41218 Park Avenue in Big Bear Lake. The vaccine will be offered as of 3pm, and will continue through 7pm, though the line may shut down early due to high volume of those waiting. For those under 18 years of age, a parent or guardian must accompany; children nine years of age and under will need two doses of the vaccine, four weeks apart. Questions on next Monday’s free H1N1 flu vaccine opportunity can be directed to Shelley Black at the school district offices at 866-4631. You can also visit the website of the County’s Department of Public Health, for additional H1N1 flu vaccine opportunities.
Update: As of Friday, this has been postponed due to weather; no new date yet.
