First Round of Shots on Me!

Let's all raise our syringes in a special toast to the upcoming National Influenza Vaccination Week Jan. 10-16.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention state that H1N1 vaccine is now available to everyone in most states. Here in New Mexico, two special flu shot clinics will make 2,000 doses of H1N1 vaccine available on a first-come, first-serve basis Saturday, Jan. 9. You can get vaccinated 1 to 4 p.m. at the Stanford Public Health Office (1111 Stanford, near the UNM Law Center) or from noon to 7:45 p.m. at Sam's Club, (10600 Coors Blvd Bypass NW). Visit www.flubusters.com or call 1-866-358-2878 for more information.

But National Influenza Vaccination Week would be unthinkable without a robust National Folic Acid Awareness Week preceding it. This week of Jan. 4-10 serves to remind all women of childbearing age to consume at least 400 micrograms of folic acid daily before and during pregnancy to help prevent neural tube defects. The month of January, in fact, is National Birth Defect Prevention Month, and you can obtain more information on prevention of birth defects here.
