H1N1 vaccine slowly becoming available across Minn.by Lorna Benson, Minnesota Public Radio
St. Paul, Minn. — At least seven Minnesota counties say they will begin offering H1N1 flu vaccine Wednesday to anyone who wants it.
Hennepin County will open up its public clinic in Plymouth today to everyone. Anoka County said it will vaccinate people up to age 64 at an H1N1 clinic in Blaine.
In Central Minnesota, Todd and Stearns Counties have removed restrictions on their clinics. So have Winona, Olmsted and Freeborn Counties in southeastern Minnesota.
In the coming days Otter Tail, Morrison, Wright and Ramsey Counties say they will hold mass vaccination clinics that will be open to everyone. The city of Minneapolis will do the same tomorrow.
More information about the clinics can be found on the individual counties and city websites. Most counties still don't have enough vaccine to expand their clinics beyond the priority groups and a handful of rural counties don't have any vaccine clinic information listed on their websites.
The Minnesota Department of Health has a tool on its website that allows you to search for an H1N1 vaccine clinic using your zip code.
