The Rock County Health Department has cancelled the H1N1 vaccination clinics scheduled for the Clinton and Beloit-Turner School District's this week.


Health Officer Karen Cain says too little vaccine is available, so a new central distribution site has been selected. Cain also says only residents meeting a specific criteria will be immunized. They include healthy 2 to 4 year olds, healthy persons age 5 through 48 who live with or care for an infant under age 6 months, or health care and emergency medical servies personnel under the age of 49.


The mass vaccination clinic is set for October 27th and 28th from 3:00 p.m. - 7:00 p.m. at the Rock County Job Center located at 1900 Center Avenue in Janesville.
