MSJC to host H1N1 vaccination clinics

Riverside County Supervisor Jeff Stone will join the Riverside County Department of Public Health during H1N1 vaccination clinics held at Mt. San Jacinto College on Jan. 21 and Jan. 22, 2010.

Officials from Mt. San Jacinto College H1N1 Task Force have been working with the county public health officials to bring this important health service to the community in an effort to help prevent the spread of the virus.

Riverside County public health nurses will administer the vaccines and be assisted by registered nurses who work at MSJC. Supervisor Stone, who represents the 3rd District, is a licensed pharmacist and will also help administer the vaccines.

The vaccinations are free.
