Incidents of Swine Flu have been reported throughout the Metro-Detroit area, but help has finally arrived. The vaccine is now available in limited amounts. Because the number of doses is limited, however, the vaccine will initially be administered to people in high-risk groups: babies, children and young people age 24 and under; pregnant women; health-care workers; and people with respiratory conditions.
Health departments across the Metro-Detroit area will administer free doses of the vaccine as it becomes available. Check the appropriate website for specific, up-to-date information about the availability of the vaccine in your city or county:
Michigan's Department of Community Health has a website devoted to the Swine Flu. It is a great resource for information about the Swine Flu and the locations at which vaccine will be available throughout Michigan.
Information about the benefits and risks of the vaccine can be found on the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention website
