Montgomery County Out of Vaccine, Except for One Group

Play associated audio

Montgomery County Maryland Health officials are out of the H1N1 swine flu vaccine, for all but one group of people. That group is pregnant women. The county's health department is holding a special clinic this Wednesday -- by appointment only -- to distribute a limited number of the injectible form of the vaccine to expectant mothers.

But, those appointments can only be made today between 3 and 5pm by calling the Montgomery County H1N1 appointment line at 240-777-4040. The county says they currently are out of all other forms of the vaccine, including the nasal spray.

Health officials have also canceled the clinics originally scheduled for November 4th, 11th and 18th. Those clinics will be rescheduled as soon as more vaccine becomes available.
