Inside a Swine Flu vaccination clinic

On Thursday, November 19, and Saturday, November 21, 2009, I spent about five hours each day working as a volunteer at a vaccination clinic run by the Monroe County Public Health Department (DPH). It was one of five each day held to vaccinate at risk groups for pandemic H1N1, the Swine Flu. I worked at the one held at the former Medley Center Mall in Irondequoit.

The October 24 report shows nearly a 50% increase in such visits from the October 17 report. The Hudson Valley and Long Island regions show a much smaller increase.
