PROVO — The Utah County Health Department is offering H1N1 flu vaccine clinics beginning in January.

There is no cost for the vaccine, but appointments are required and can be made at www.utahcountyhealth.org; click on "H1N1 Online Appointment Scheduler" and follow the "Schedule Now" link.

The county has received plentiful supplies of the vaccine in recent weeks, while demand has declined, health department spokesman Lance Madigan said.

"That doesn't mean the flu shot isn't needed, or that there won't be a third wave," he said, adding that public health officials expect a resurgence of both H1N1 and seasonal flu in February or March. "It's not too late to get a vaccine for either one."

In addition to the appointment-only clinics, which will include seasonal flu vaccines for $23, the department will sponsor H1N1 vaccine-only clinics Jan. 7 from 5 to 7 p.m. at American Fork Junior High School, 20 W. 1120 North, American Fork; and Jan. 14 from 5 to 7 p.m. at Diamond Fork Junior High, 50 N. 900 East, Spanish Fork. Appointments are not required but will be given priority over walk-ins, Madigan said.

Vaccines also will available on a walk-in basis at the department's Provo Immunization Office, 151 S. University Ave., starting in January.
