New mass vaccinations scheduled to start Dec. 7.

A second round of free mass vaccination clinics to immunize Arkansans against both seasonal and HIN1 influenza will begin Dec. 7, the Arkansas Department of Health announced last week.

The clinics will be held in nearly every county through Dec. 18, according to Randy Lee, director of ADH's Center for Local Public Health.

The clinics will be giving H1N1 (swine flu) vaccine to anyone--not just higher-risk priority groups--while supplies last, including children needing second shots for full protection, Lee said.

For a complete list of locations and times of the clinics as well as complete flu information, visit or call (800) 651-3493.
