Inova flu shot clinics

Efforts to quickly manufacture and distribute the H1N1 influenza vaccine have unexpectedly reduced supplies of vaccine for the seasonal flu. The manufacturers that supply Inova Health System with seasonal flu vaccine have informed Inova that deliveries of the vaccine will arrive later than had been anticipated.

As a result, Inova is temporarily postponing flu shot clinics until more vaccine arrives. Inova will continue to offer certain scheduled clinics to serve the high-risk community, including the weekly family clinics at Inova facilities, and will continue to vaccinate its employees to help protect patients.

Inova will reschedule the clinics. In the meantime, for information about clinic availability or location, call 703-750-8818 or go to


DISABILITY RESOURCE CENTER, technological help through the state Department for the Deaf and Hard-of-Hearing and with loans from the state Technology Assistance Program, referrals to other agencies and presentations to businesses, civic groups and schools, 2-5 p.m. third Thursdays, the Workplace, 205 Keith St., Warrenton. Free. Call for appointment. 800-648-6324, TDD 540-373-5890.
