Sun coverage

The Southern Nevada Health District is suspending regular services Wednesday to concentrate on giving H1N1 flu vaccine to priority groups and extending immunization clinics to three schools on Saturday.

From 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Wednesday an H1N1 clinic is scheduled at the health district's Ravenholt Public Health Center, 625 Shadow Lane. All other client services at the center, such as health cards, regular immunizations and sexually-transmitted disease services will not be available on Wednesday.

From 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday H1N1 flu vaccine clinics have been scheduled at three schools: Del Sol High School, 3100 E. Patrick Lane; Mojave High School, 5302 Goldfield St., North Las Vegas; and Sierra Vista High School, 8100 W. Robindale Road.

The H1N1 flu vaccine is available to priority groups, including pregnant women, people who live with or care for children younger than 6 months, health care and emergency medical service workers, people between the ages of 6 months and 24 years old and people between 25 and 64 years old with chronic health disorders or compromised immune systems.

The H1N1 vaccine will continue to be offered at the health district, 625 Shadow Lane, from 1 p.m. until 6 p.m. through the week of Thanksgiving, health officials said. Future H1N1 immunization clinics will be announced as more vaccine becomes available.

For additional information, visit www.snhd.info, or call the Nevada helpline at (702) 759-4636.

The health district is also available on Facebook, YouTube and Twitter.
