    Updated

    Weekly H1N1 Vaccine Supply Status Update:

    The University of Minnesota’s Center for Infectious Disease Research & Policy (CIDRAP) has reported that there has been an increase in patients being seen in hospitals with flu-like illness. In the past, pandemic episodes of the flu occurred in three waves and the Health Department is cautioning residents that this pandemic may have another wave yet to occur. Residents are urged to get vaccinated if they haven’t done so already.
    The State of Connecticut Department of Public Health has notified local health departments that the H1N1 vaccine can now be given to anyone who wants to be vaccinated. The H1N1 vaccine is free and you do not need to be a New Haven resident to be vaccinated. You DO NOT need an appointment to get vaccinated however, to save time, you are asked to complete the vaccination form before coming to the clinic. Please click here for the vaccination form in both English and Spanish. Fill out this form on your computer using all CAPITAL LETTERS, print it out once you complete it, and then bring it with you to the clinic. You will need to complete a form for each person getting vaccinated.

    • Will this vaccine protect me from the seasonal flu?

    The novel H1N1 vaccine will only protect you from novel H1N1 flu so it is important for you to get your seasonal flu shot as well to protect yourself from the seasonal flu. 
    The New Haven Health Department no longer has seasonal flu vaccine and does not anticipate getting any more seasonal flu vaccine this season.
