Flu clinic popular, returns as news of death spreads
In Oct. 22 Issue

The vaccine was gone in 15 minutes, after people began lining up early for Saturday morning's flu clinic.

"There were cars lining up at 7:30 in the morning," said Emergency Services Director H.M. Bottom.

More inoculations are available through local physicians and health department officials say they expect to receive more as well.

The clinic for H1N1 inoculations lasted the scheduled time, and there was only a small line as the doors opened for that clinic at noon Saturday.

The Lake Cumberland District Health Department is planning another flu clinic for H1N1 vaccinations only.  The clinic will be held Thursday evening, October 22, from 5:00 PM until 7:00 PM at each county health department.  There will be a limited amount of H1N1 flu mist (nasal spray) and injections available.

The injectable vaccinations are reserved at this time for individuals who fall into the priority groups identified by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC).  No appointments will be made.  Vaccine will be available on a first come, first served basis and quantities are limited.

A twenty-eight-year-old man has become the first death attributed to the H1N1 flu in Pulaski County. Officials at Lake Cumberland Regional Hospital have reported the cause of death was confirmed today by the Kentucky Department of Health.

"We are truly saddened that the flu has taken the life of this young man," stated Sheryl Glasscock, RN, MSN, Lake Cumberland Regional Hospital Chief Nursing Officer.

"Our thoughts and prayers are with his family."

Visitation has been limited at the Lake Cumberland Regional Medical Center, and limitations are likely at other area hospitals if incidents of flu increase in the area.

The health department's recommendation for early limitations is to bar small children from the facilities and if necessary all but the closest and healthiest relatives of anyone hospitalized could be barred from the facilities.

Recent epidemiological data reported out of the northeast suggests that young adults are more likely to be infected, while those with underlying medical conditions, including pregnancy and obesity are more likely to be hospitalized if infected.
