      Southwest Georgia gets more H1N1 nasal mist

      Southwest Georgia received about 1,700 more H1N1 nasal mist vaccines

      The Southwest Georgia Health District has received about 1,700 additional doses of the H1N1 nasal mist vaccine.

      Health officials are urging two to nine-year-olds to get their second dose of the H1N1 vaccine. Public Health Director Dr. Jacquelyn Grant says children in that range need two vaccines 28 days apart for it to really boost immunity. Grant says it can be the shot or mist twice or a combination.

      Health officials say the new batch will still go to those others who are eligible. You can find a list of the priority groups at http://www.cdc.gov/h1n1flu/vaccination/acip.htm.
