Free H1N1 Vaccines Through Metro Health

By January 20, 2010

There is a lot of controversy and arguments on both sides of the spectrum regarding the H1N1 vaccine. Since I am not a medical professional and this is not a medical website (though About.com has plenty of medical-related websites), I won't get into that.

But just in case you do approve of and/or want the vaccine, San Antonio's Metropolitan Health District is offering free vaccination today (January 20th) from 12:00 noon to 8:00 p.m.

You have your choice of injection or a nasal spray for those who are squeamish about needles. Just show up to the Alamodome during the appointed time and get your vaccination before a reported third wave of the virus hits, which some experts predict could be at the end of this month or the beginning of next month. This timeframe is also the peak of the dreaded flu season.

For more information, you can go to the Metro Health website or call their flu hotline at (210) 207-5779.
