Tightened eligibility rules at one H1N1 vaccine clinic

Posted:

DES MOINES (KWWL) -- Polk County health officials have tightened the eligibility rules for the H1N1 vaccine.

So far, the department has given out about 8,000 doses but because of the high demand and short supply, officials say the vaccine will only be administered to high-priority groups at Sunday's clinic in Des Moines. Healthy people over the age of 4 will not be eligible. They will allow babies, pregnant women and children with chronic health problems.
