LIMA — Allen County pupils can get the H1N1 vaccine starting next week.

Clinics are being held for kindergarten through 12th-graders in all Allen County schools over the next two weeks, the Allen County Health Department reported Thursday.

Pupils who attend private schools or are home schooled should attend the clinic in the district in which they live.

Pupils needing their second dose of the vaccine can attend the school clinics or schedule an appointment at the health department by calling 419-228-4636.

Because of the limited supply of the vaccine, appointments are not being taken for adults. Adults are encouraged to check with their doctor’s office about availability. They should also check with their doctor for children under kindergarten age. The health department will schedule vaccine appointments once more vaccine is available.

Additional information about the vaccine is available at www.allencountyhealthdepartment.org. Officials encourage parents to pre-register their children through the Web site.
