TCC Hosts H1N1 Mass Clinics

Tarrant County College will host mass clinics for H1N1 vaccinations at four campuses beginning next week. Vaccinations are free and will be administered by the Tarrant County Health Department at Trinity River, South, Southeast and Northeast campuses. The clinics are open to the public and are no longer limited to target populations.

“Although the news media are no longer reporting stories of the H1N1 influenza,  pandemic cases of H1N1 are still occurring,” said Woody Kageler, TCC Northeast Campus Health Sciences Director. “Vaccination with the H1N1 vaccine remains the best protection against this infection.”

Trinity River Campus will hold the first TCC clinic in 2010 Friday, Feb. 26, from 4 to 7 p.m. in the dining area of the Riverfront Café.  On the following Monday, March 1, South Campus will hold a clinic from 2 to 7 p.m. on the second floor of the Student Center in the Living Room, SSTU 2105.

In Arlington, the clinic at Southeast Campus will be Monday, March 8, from noon to 5 p.m. in the North Ballroom. The final TCC clinic will be held at Northeast Campus Wednesday, March 10, from noon to 5 p.m. in the Student Center Galley, NSTU 1506A.

TCC’s first H1N1 clinic was successfully held at Northwest Campus in December when 1,475 vaccinations were administered.
