MyVeronaNJ-doctorThe Verona Health Department is partnering with the Montclair Health Department to offer the both intra-nasal and shot versions of the H1N1 vaccine.

The first clinic will be for the intra-nasal vaccine. This is a weakened live virus vaccine that is sprayed into your nose rather than injected into a muscle. The health departments emphasize that you cannot get H1N1 from the intra-nasal vaccine. It is for healthy individuals ages 2 through 24 without chronic medical conditions or weakened immune systems, including women who are not pregnant. It is also appropriate for healthy individuals age 25 to 49 years of age who live with or care for infants younger than 6 months, and healthcare or emergency medical personnel. The health departments are reminding us that children under 10 who get the intra-nasal vaccine will need two doses of it, given approximately one month apart. This vaccine is not appropriate for pregnant women, people in close contact with a person with a weakened immune system, and people with chronic medical conditions or a weakened immune system.

The intra-nasal clinic is Monday, January 18 from 3 to 7 p.m. at the Verona Community Center, 880 Bloomfield Avenue.

People ages 4 and older can get the shot form of the H1N1 vaccine on Monday, January 25 from 3 to 7 p.m. at the Community Center.

In either case, you’ve got have an appointment; they will not take walk-ins. To book an appointment, go to Montclair’s Web site and click on “H1N1 Update – BOOK NOW”.[mappress]
