Do you need a second dose of H1N1 vaccine?

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends children age 9 and under get two separate doses of H1N1 vaccine.  According to CDC guidelines, it is preferable to separate the two doses by at least 28 days.  

The first dose of vaccine in children under 9 does provide some protection against the H1N1 flu virus, but a second dose is recommended to maximize that protection.

For parents of Anchorage School District children who are seeking their child's second dose of vaccine, there are the following options in Anchorage:

  • The Disease Prevention and Control Clinis at the DHHS building (9th Ave and L St) is offering free H1N1 vaccine during regular clinic hours.  Visit the clinic's webpage for more details.  
  • Several private healthcare providers and pharmacies have signed up to receive shipments of vaccine.  Please contact providers and pharmacies directly for more information.
  • The Anchorage Neighborhood Health Center is offering free vaccinations for the general public.  Vaccine is available on a walk in basis Monday-Friday from 8-11am and 1-4pm.  ANHC is located at 1217 E. 10th Ave, next door to the Fairview Recreation Center.
