Story from the Field


Name of Health Department/Agency: Tri-County Health Department
State: CO
Date Added: 12/21/2009
Themes: Vaccine Supply and Distribution
Issue Summary: National and Regional Pharmacy Chain Participation in H1N1 Vaccine Campaign in CO
Description of Issue(s): In Colorado, next week will be the first week that the retail pharmacies in our three counties will get H1N1 vaccine to give. Other counties have already given vaccine to them because they could not handle the burden of vaccinating themselves.
Actions taken to address the issue(s):
Outcomes that resulted from actions taken: We do not anticipate any problems and wanted to make sure the vaccine was available in our communities during the holidays. Most of our big clinic/pods were held at schools, and the majority were done before the vaccine was available to everyone. We expect that seniors wanting this vaccine will be comfortable getting it from their local pharmacy.
