Washoe County Health District:

LAS VEGAS (AP) - Health officials in southern Nevada and Washoe County have scheduled swine flu immunization clinics for Saturday.

The Southern Nevada Health District has scheduled its clinics for between 10 a.m. and 6 p.m. at the health district's main location and at its Henderson public health center.

Both the injected and inhaled forms of the H1N1 vaccine will be available to those who are in one of several priority groups.

In Washoe County there will also be two clinics on Saturday for those in high-risk groups.

Both clinics will be at the Washoe County Heath District offices in the county administrative complex in Reno.

The first clinic is from 8:30 a.m. to 11 a.m. and is reserved for health care provider office workers. The second clinic is from 10:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. and is for anyone in a high-risk group, particularly those whose schedules make it hard to attend a weekday clinic.

The Washoe County Health District will distribute 1,300 wristbands Friday beginning at seven a.m. on a first-come, first-served basis for the Saturday clinic.

Priority groups generally include pregnant women, those who live with or care for children younger than 6 months old, health care and emergency medical services workers, and children and adults between the ages of 6 months and 24 years old.

The vaccine is free at the vaccination clinics scheduled for Saturday.
