Feather River Bulletin Wednesday, Feb. 10, 2010 5A Flu clinics offer HI N I an'd seasonal vaccines Plumas County Public Health will sponsor five com- munity H1N1 vaccination clinics. The clinics will offer the H1N1 vaccine and season- al vaccine free of charge and they are open to Plumas County residents of all ages, infants to senior citizens. Community H1N1 vaccina- tion clinics will be held: Feb. 17, from 10 a.m.-2:30 p.m. at Feather River Commu- nity College, Allied Health Building, Golden Eagle Dr.; look for signs; Feb. 23, from 3:30-6:30 p.m. at Lake Almanor Clinic, 199 Reynolds Drive, Chester; Feb. 24, from 3:30-6:30 p.m. at Greenville Town Hall, 120 Bidwell, Greenville; Feb. 25, from 3:30-6:30 p.m. at Portola Memorial Hall, 449 W.

Free H1N1 vaccine is also available by appointment at the Plumas County Public Health Department, call 283- 6330 or (800) 801-6330. Children age 9 years and under should receive two dos- es of the vaccine, adminis- tered at least four weeks apart, to have the best protec- tion. There are some individuals, such as people who are se- verely allergic to eggs and in- fants under the age of six months, who should not re- ceive the H1N1 vaccine. Residents should consult with their health care provider if they are not sure whether or not they should re- ceive the vaccine. Detailed in- formation about the H1N1 vaccine can be found at flu.gov. According to Plumas Coun- ty Health Officer Dr. Valeska Armisen, the H1N1 virus con- tinues to circulate in the com- munity, and there is still val- ue in getting the H1N1 vac- cine. "This virus has been unpre- dictable. It is possible that we could have another wave of illness from H1N1, so I urge those people who have not been vaccinated to get vacci- nated now," said Armisen. The traditional flu season is just beginning and typically lasts until May. History tells us to prepare for another seri- ous wave of illness. With H1N1 flu declining in many areas, there is a window of op- portunity to help prevent the flu from spreading further The agency especially en- and causing even more ill- courages people with underly- ness, hospitalization and death. The HIN1 flu vaccine is safe, effective and the best way to protect against the H1N1 flu. The H1N1 vaccine is made the same way seasonal flu vaccines are made every year. Extensive testing and moni- toring have shown the vac- cine is not only safe, but also an excellent match for the H1N1 flu virus. Becoming vac, cinated helps the community by preventing the spread of the flu virus. ing heaIth conditions, preg- nant women, children, young adults, caretakers of infants and healthcare workers to be vaccinated against H1N1. Unlike the seasonal flu, H1N1 has hit children, young people and adults under age 65 exceptionally hard. That is why the agency encourages them to get the H1N1 vaccine as soon as possible.

Not only are they assigned responsibil- ity for a group of campers, they are also involved in the pre-camp planning. They will learn leadership, problem solving and organi- zational skills they can use for the rest of their lives. Be- ing a counselor is hard work and a lot of fun. Applicants chosen to be counselors will be notified and start planning and preparing for camp during the first week of April, and will meet approximately four times between April and July. This year's camp will be held July 14-18; counselors will prepare camp July 12-13.

Out and about Adding what was considered to be another informative stop to the many places already visited locally, the Quincy Out and Abouters toured the Feather Publishing offices recently. Publisher Mike Taborski guided the group through the business, classified, advertising, editorial and production departments, while explaining how the company's six weekly newspapers get put together. "We were all impressed with the size and scope of your operation," said chairwoman Brenda Lantow. Tours of the newspaper plant may be arranged by calling Sandy Condon at Feather Publishing at 283-0800. Each month the Out and Abouters, a committee of the Quincy Chamber of Commerce, organizes an excursion for its members. If you have something you think they would find interesting and informative, call Lantow at 283-4991.
