State expands H1N1 target vaccination group to include healthy kids, young adults
MADISON (WKOW) -- State health officials have expanded the list of those eligible to receive an H1N1 vaccination to once again include healthy school-aged children and young adults.
Based on current supply figures, Wisconsin will now allow these additional groups to receive the swine flu vaccination. But health officials maintain there are still not enough doses to open vaccinations to the general public statewide at this time.
Target groups for the vaccination now include:
Persons who live with or provide care for infants age 6 months or younger (examples: parents, siblings, daycare providers)
Healthcare and emergency medical services personnel
All people from 6 months through 24 years of age
Persons 25-64 years of age with conditions associated with higher risk of complications from influenza
