An additional supply of the injectable H1N1 vaccine has been received at Brady Health. Therefore we now have both the nasal spray form of the H1N1 vaccine and the injectable form. Either H1N1 vaccine is available at no charge to any student, faculty or staff member of Frostburg State who desires to receive the vaccine. Because of increased availability, there are no longer any restrictions on who can receive H1N1 vaccination. Call 301-687-4310 to schedule an appointment or if you have any questions.

If you have not already received the H1N1 vaccine, get it now before the expected "third wave" hits.

To all students, faculty and staff,

With the governor's announcement yesterday that H1N1 vaccine can now be distributed to the general public, Brady Health will open up vaccination to any current student, faculty or staff member who desires vaccination. We ONLY have the H1N1 Flu Mist (nasal spray) vaccine available. We do not anticipate getting any more injectable H1N1 vaccine before the winter break.

However, the injectable H1N1 vaccine, as well as injectable seasonal vaccine, will be available through an Allegany County Health Department vaccination clinic this Friday, Dec. 11, at the Allegany County Fairgrounds, off of McMullen Highway (U.S. 220), from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. The H1N1 vaccine will be offered free of charge, but there is a $30 fee for the seasonal vaccine. This clinic is open to everyone. For more information, visit the Health Department Web site: www.alleganyhealthdept.com.

The nasal spray vaccine offered at Brady Health may be taken by healthy individuals aged 2 - 49 years. Anyone with a history of asthma, diabetes, immune suppression, pregnancy or chronic medical problems would not be able to take the nasal vaccine. Vaccination at Brady Health will be by appointment, so please call 301-687- 4310 to schedule if you desire vaccination here. There will be no charge for the visit or vaccine for H1N1.

On a related matter, Brady Health did receive a small shipment of seasonal flu vaccine (injectable) that is now available for $20 a dose. Once again, if you desire that vaccine, please also call and schedule an appointment.

A happy and hopefully flu-free healthy holiday to all
