Broome County H1N1 Clinic – Registration Full

BINGHAMTON, NY Broome County Health Department had an overwhelming response from the public wishing to pre-register for the H1N1 Clinic on Friday. Over 1,000 calls were received and screened by call-takers. At this time, all doses currently available have been assigned to people who pre-registered. “We recognize that there is a demand for the vaccine, and we are doing everything in our power to get the vaccine out as quickly, efficiently, and orderly as possible,” said Claudia Edwards, Public Health Director for Broome County. As additional vaccine becomes available, more and larger clinics will be scheduled.

Take these precautionary measures to stay healthy: 
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water. Alcohol-based hand cleansers are also effective.
  • Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when you cough or sneeze. If you don’t have a tissue, cough into your upper sleeve, not your hands. Put your used tissue in the waste basket.
  • Wash your hands after coughing or sneezing.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth. Germs spread that way.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
Broome County residents should stay tuned to the local media and Broome County’s H1N1 Website www.gobroomecounty.com/hd/flu for more information.
