Protecting Pregnant Women from H1N1

By  | 

Dozens of mothers-to-be made their way to the Washington County Health Department Tuesday afternoon for the H1N1 vaccination.

Pregnant women lined up inside and outside the health department waiting for the flu shot.

Health officials say this is the group that has the greatest need for the vaccination, and that's why this H1N1 clinic was for pregnant women only.

"Pregnant women are in one of the higher populations that we're trying to cover. They are the ones that we want to make sure that we're really out there and have the vaccine available for at this time," Bethany Gaul with the Washington County Health Department said.
