Pregnant women receive free H1N1 vaccinations from Overlake Hospital


More than 400 pregnant women who registered to give birth at Overlake Hospital Medical Center received a free H1N1 flu vaccination from Overlake on Sunday, November 8, 2009.The H1N1 immunization clinic was the first of several clinics planned by Overlake Hospital.

Overlake’s unique vaccination program offers free H1N1 immunizations to all pregnant women who have an Overlake-affiliated physician and plan to deliver at the Overlake Childbirth Center. After women pre-register for their delivery at Overlake Hopsital they receive a postcard from their physician with specific directions about scheduling an appointment for vaccination. Future clinics will be scheduled as Overlake receives more H1N1 vaccine.
