Legislators get H1N1 vaccine at Statehouse

Posted: Updated:

Indianapolis - Indiana lawmakers got their H1N1 flu vaccines Tuesday. The state Department of Health hosted a clinic at the Indiana Statehouse.

The state health commissioner says lawmakers are setting an example and it's important that you don't put off getting your vaccine.

"We're starting a new year with a lot of vaccine and I would encourage folks to think about this as if this is now October for a flu season. And so my message today is actually for those that we back in the fall said you're not a priority group, I'm saying now you are a priority group and be vaccinated because we don't know what's going to happen come spring," said Dr. Judy Monroe, state health commissioner.

Marion County health department is holding a free public H1N1 vaccine clinic this Thursday from 3:00 to 7:00 pm at the Primo South Banquet Hall on National Avenue.

The vaccine is available for free at local health departments or for a cost at many pharmacies.
