A free swine-flu vaccination clinic will be held today from 3 to 6 p.m. in the Corry Middle-High School gym for members of the community.

The H1N1 shots will be given on a first-come, first-served basis. The clinic will be operated by the Erie Center on Health and Aging.

Shots will be administered to people 6 months of age or older.

All children under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.

The clinic is targeting specific high-risk groups. Anyone who falls within the following categories is encouraged to get vaccinated:

• Pregnant women.

• Caretakers of children younger than 6 months of age.

• Health-care and emergency medical services personnel.

• Persons between the ages of 6 months and 24 years old. A special dose will be given to babies and toddlers between the ages of 6 months and 3 years old.

• Persons 25 to 64 years of age with chronic health disorders or compromised immune systems.

A clinic for middle-high school students and staff was held earlier today.

Parents of elementary students who would like their child to receive a shot must bring them to the school from 3 to 6 p.m.
