NO H1N1 innoculations will be dispensed

Local agencies including the city of Santa Clarita, College of the Canyons and the Los Angeles County Department of Health will host a drive-through flu shot clinic on Friday, Oct. 30.

The clinic will dispense seasonal flu shots only, contrary to some reports published elsewhere, according to organizers. NO vaccines for the H1N1 virus will be dispensed.

This is the fourth consecutive year for this activity, which features the dispensing of flu shots without people generally having to leave the comfort of their cars.

The flu-shot production line will be conducted in the College of the Canyons Valencia campus parking lots off Rockwell Canyon Road, with shots being dispensed from 10 a.m. until 12:30 p.m., or as long as the vaccine lasts.
 
Entry to the parking lots and the clinic will be via one entrance on Rockwell only to facilitate patient pre-shot screening.

People will generally stay in their cars to help minimize the potential spread of infection. As a result, no walk-up shots will be administered.

The number of flu shots administered each year depends on the availability of seasonal flu vaccine. Organizers anticipate more than 1,000 shots will be available this year.
