Dallas Reports Another H1N1 Death

By BJ Austin, KERA News

Dallas, TX –

Dallas County is reporting its 15th H1N1 flu death. Officials say it was a 44 year old man with underlying medical conditions.

Wednesday, the County will hold a walk-in H1N1 vaccination clinic at the Health Department on Stemmons Freeway. The free shots are for those in the identified risk groups: including pregnant women; care givers for infants younger than six months; people six months to 24 years of age; and anyone 25 to 64 with underlying medical conditions.

Health officials have ten thousand doses, and expect very long lines on Wednesday.
