Get Free Swine Flu Vaccine Now

Very Short Lines at H1N1 Shot Clinic Happening Right Now


Right now, more than 2,000 doses of H1N1 vaccine are being doled out by the County of Santa Barbara, and officials say that there are witnessing the shortest lines yet as part of a swine flu vaccine clinic. As such, they are reminding residents that now is the best time ever to get your vaccine.

The clinic is currently underway at Earl Warren Showgrounds until 7 p.m. and is open to children up to 18 years old, parents of infants aged six months or younger, health care workers, and pregnant women. The shots are entirely free.
