Google Map Shows Where To Get Flu And H1N1 Shots

Here is the link to Google's map that allows you to input your zip or city and state to find out where you can get flu and H1N1 shots.

The link is here.  I think it's prudent for folks to get it.  Of course, I think you should use your personal judgment when it comes to getting the shots.  No, no.  I'm not talking about the voodoo science that's being spread about vaccines.

What I mean is if you're in the priority category, get it.  Pregnant folks (women) and children.  Here are some critical information I ripped from a health site in Orange County, CA.

  • people who live with or care for children younger than 6 months of age,
  • healthcare and emergency medical services personnel,
  • persons between the ages of 6 months through 24 years of age, and
  • people from ages 25 through 64 years who are at higher risk for Pandemic (H1N1) 2009 influenza complications because of chronic health disorders or compromised immune systems
  • Approximately 10% of the vaccine supply will be available through Kaiser Permanente to its members (NOW AVAILABLE)
  • More than 1,000 private health care providers will receive vaccine, so check with your provider
  • Many schools, colleges and universities will be offering onsite vaccinations for school children
  • Many Community Clinics will have vaccinations available to the public
  • Several hospitals, cities, community service centers, and the Health Care Agency will be offering public vaccination clinics.
Anyway, there are lines for a lot of the public venue where shots are provided.  Charge up your iPhones, smartphones, and Kindles and be prepared to wait a bit.  And it could save your life as well as those of your love ones.
