Fargo flu clinics set for Saturday, Monday
Fargo Cass Public Health officials are warning people not to let their guard down against the H1N1 influenza, urging that the best protection is vaccination.
"What we are seeing right now is a dip in the second wave of H1N1 cases in our area. The first wave was during April and May," said Ruth Bachmeier, FCPH director.
"We expect to see a third wave of H1N1 cases increasing in early to mid-winter," Bachmeier added.
The next H1N1 clinic will be from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday (or until the vaccine is gone) at Fargo North High School.
The clinic is for all children ages 6 months through 18 years, pregnant women, and parents and direct caregivers of infants younger than 6 months.
Parking will be on the south side of the school, and the entrance to the clinic will be at door No. 22.
There also will be a clinic from 4 to 6 p.m. Monday at the south campus of Hope Lutheran Church, 3636 25th St. S., Fargo.
The clinic will be for pregnant women and parents and direct caregivers of infants younger than 6 months.
