The Johnson County Health Department (JCHD) has received 700 doses of H1N1 flu vaccine in nasal spray form. Six hundred doses have been allocated to Johnson County Med-Act for first responders. One hundred doses will be distributed at the Health Department to staff with direct patient contact and to limited, high priority, high-risk populations. Twenty-three hundred doses were direct shipped to Johnson County hospitals.
JCHD expects that the next shipment of H1N1 flu vaccine will be received in approximately one week. The plan is to continue distribution to priority groups as vaccine allotment allows. Media updates will continue to be made as more details are available.
