Free H1N1 shots offered today

Stanislaus County will offer free vaccinations for H1N1 flu from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. today at Centenary United Methodist Church, 1911 Toyon Ave., Modesto, near McHenry and Briggsmore avenues.

The shots are for residents 6 months and older. Those attending will be asked to show proof of a Stanislaus County address. Preservative-free vaccine is available for pregnant women.

Wear a short-sleeved shirt layered under warm clothing, because people may have to wait in lines outdoors.

Another vaccination clinic will be offered Jan. 14 at the Assyrian American Civic Center, 2618 N. Golden State Blvd., Turlock.
