The Harford County Health Department will conduct four walk-in H1N1 vaccination clinics for the general population during the next two weeks.

The first vaccination clinic will be held Wednesday from 1:30 to 4:30 p.m. at the Harford County Health Department's Edgewood location, 1321 Woodbridge Station Way.

A clinic also will be held this Saturday, Jan. 23, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Aberdeen Senior Activity Center, 7 Franklin Street.

Another clinic will be conducted next Wednesday, Jan. 27, from 1:30 to 4:30 p.m. at the Edgewood location.

On Saturday, Jan. 30, the local health department will also operate an H1N1 vaccination clinic at Harford Mall in Bel Air, outside of Macy's department store, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

All vaccinations are the injectable form and are free. No appointments are necessary, and none will not be taken.

“Vaccination is safe, reliable, and the single best way to prevent serious consequences of the flu, as well as the spread of influenza," Susan Kelly, health officer, said in a press release Tuesday. "Historically, demand for flu vaccination declines and complacency increases after the holiday season, but we must continue to be vigilant."

Last week, the Maryland Department of Health and Mental Hygiene reported two additional H1N1 related deaths in Baltimore-metro region, which includes Baltimore, Anne Arundel, Howard and Harford counties, as well as Baltimore City.

Personal details about these cases, including age, gender and specific jurisdiction of residence, will not be released to protect the privacy of the resident and the resident's family, according to the health department.
