More H1N1 Vaccines Arrive In Texoma

Posted:

More H1N1 vaccines are available in Grayson County. An urgent care facility - One Medical in Sherman - just received a new shipment from the state.

One Medical has about 120 doses of the H1N1 vaccine left in this second shipment from the state. They received 110 doses in their first shipment, but within 48 hours they had administered every dose. They expect another crowd Monday morning

"The first shipment we got they came in very many at a time," said Donna Gage with One Medical. "This shipment has been a little bit slower. I think they haven't learned that we have it, but once the news gets out, Monday and Tuesday will be very busy for us."

If you're interested in getting the H1N1 vaccine and you are in a high risk group which includes children between the ages of 6 months to 18 years old, or if you are an adult with underlying medical conditions you can visit One Medical in Sherman to receive the vaccine. They are open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m.

The medical center says they do expect a third shipment of vaccines within the next week.

In Oklahoma, officials with the Carter County Health Department will be in Ravia Monday morning to vaccinate school children. It's part of their drive to get all kids within their four-county area vaccinated by Thanksgiving.

They'll also visit Oakhall Private School, Franklin Elementary, Ryan, Mansville and Take Two Academy this week. After Thanksgiving they hope to visit Tishomingo High School and Ardmore High School.
