Pasco health department offers free swine flu vaccines Saturday

NEW PORT RICHEY — The Pasco County Health Department will offer free swine flu vaccines — both the nasal spray and the injectable form — on Saturday at three clinics. The clinics will run from 10:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. at the following Pasco County Health Department locations:

• 13941 15th Street, Dade City

• 10841 Little Road, New Port Richey

• 4135 Land O'Lakes Blvd, Land O'Lakes

The limited vaccines will be given first-come, first-served. Tickets for vaccinations will be distributed. Officials say there may be a wait time associated with obtaining vaccine at these clinics.

Children under the age of 10 will need to have a second H1N1 vaccination at least 28 days after the initial dose. Children under the age of 10 who have received their first dose will need to return for a second vaccination with documentation of when they were given their first dose. The Pasco County Health Department will return to the elementary schools to administer the second dose to children who received them in the schools.

Additional H1N1 Swine Flu vaccine clinic information can be found at
