County to close H1N1 clinic

STAFF REPORT

The Hays County Personal Health Department (PHD) is closing its Hopkins Street clinic dedicated to H1N1 immunizations.

The clinic will close at the end of business Friday. Starting next Monday, the PHD will continue to offer residents the H1N1 flu vaccine at locations in San Marcos and Kyle.

“Beginning May 3, our regular immunization clinics will take over offering the H1N1 vaccine,” said PHD Director Priscilla Hargraves. “The (dedicated) clinic was opened to provide specialized, fast service to those people who wanted the H1N1 vaccine and to prevent our regular immunization clinics from bogging down with large numbers of people seeking only that particular vaccine. After serving some 3,300 people at the Hopkins Street clinic, we believe that we can handle additional requests at our standard locations.”

The PHD also immunized some 1,500 Hays County students at their schools.

A number of vaccines for adults and children are offered by PHD at its regular clinic locations at 150 Lockhart Road in Kyle and at 401-A Broadway in San Marcos. The hours for those clinica are Mondays from 1-7 p.m. and Tuesdays from 1-5 p.m.

The PHD also offers vaccinations at its monthly clinic in Dripping Springs from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on the first Thursday of every month at the Precinct 4 Building located at 195 Roger Hanks Parkway.

For additional information about PHD immunizations and other services, call PHD at (512) 393-5520 or visit www.co.hays.tx.us and click on Departments/Personal Health Department.
