Health Department administering free H1N1 vaccines
The state Health Department will be offering free H1N1 flu vaccines next week in Kalihi and Waianae.
The vaccines will be administered from 12:30 to 3 p.m. Tuesday at Palama Settlement and at 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Wednesday at Waianae High School.
“It’s not too late to get vaccinated. H1N1 is still a threat,” said Dr. Chiyome Fukino, director of the state Health Department. “Now that there is ample vaccine supply, it’s crucial everyone gets vaccinated as an important preventative measure. And this is a great opportunity for parents to make sure their kids under 10 get a second dose.”
