H1N1 Vaccine Now Available To Everyone

A supply that was once in such high demand some health departments couldn't keep it in stock is now in good supply and available for everyone.

The Pitt County Health Department, like all others, says it will now provide the 2009 H1N1 vaccine to anyone who requests it as opposed to just high risk groups such as pregnant women and children.

According to Health Director John Morrow the decision was made because the vaccine supply has increased and the demand among targeted people has decreased.

The health director also wanted to remind parents that children ages 9 and under will need two doses of the H1N1 vaccine to be adequately protected.
