H1N1 flu clinics continue around the region today and tomorrow.

A thousand doses will be available at each of the three clinics in Montgomery County, Maryland today. The clinics at Northwood, Northwest and Rockville High Schools will be held from 4-8 p.m. tonight. Only youth aged 2 to 24 are eligible for the nasal spray vaccinations at those sites.

In Virginia, Fairfax County is offering the vaccine at five county health offices. The vaccines will be provided to pregnant women, children between 2 and 5 years old, and parents of children under six months old. Each clinic will distribute 250 vaccinations per day until supplies last.

The district hosts clinics tomorrow night from 5 to nine at Hardy Middle School and Wilson Senior High School. They'll serve pregnant women and youth ranging from 6 months to 24 years old.
