(LOS ANGELES, CA - December 9, 2009) - According to Los Angeles County public health officials, a third wave of H1N1 flu outbreaks could still occur in January due to an influx of visitors for the holidays. To prevent a third wave of the H1N1 flu, federal health officials are urging individuals to get vaccinated now.

KHEIR Center would like to announce that the KHEIR Community Clinic has made the H1N1 flu vaccine available to everyone in the community now. Appointments are recommended, but not necessary. For more information, please call 213-637-1070.

The 2009 H1N1 flu (also called Swine Flu) is caused by a new strain of influenza virus. Like other flu viruses, 2009 H1N1 spreads from person to person through coughing, sneezing and sometimes through touching objects contaminated with the virus. Signs of 2009 H1N1 can include: fatigue, fever, sore throat, muscle aches, chills, coughing and sneezing. Some people also have diarrhea and vomiting.

KHEIR will continue to update the public and media as more H1N1 vaccine becomes available from the County of Los Angeles Department of Health Services.
