Hola:

Este año nos enfrentamos a dos tipos diferentes de gripe, por lo que dos tipos de vacunas se están fabricando. Hemos empezado a recibir una parte de las vacunas H1N1, pero este suministro es limitado y se reserva para personas con riesgo especialmente alto de contagiarse la gripe, como mujeres embarazadas, bebés, personas que cuidan niños pequeños y trabajadores de la salud en contacto directo con pacientes. A medida que el suministro aumente, usted empezará a ver puestos de vacunación pública en su comunidad.

Escuche nuestro anuncio de radio en español para estar al tanto de la información más reciente.

Usted también podrá verificar la disponibilidad de la vacuna H1N1 de la siguiente manera:

  1. Preguntándole a su médico.
  2. Visitando la página http://flu.masspro.org. Puede colocar su código postal (zip code) en la página para encontrar un puesto de vacunación cerca de usted.
  3. Llamando a su consejo de salud local, centro de salud comunitario o al 2-1-1.

Para más información, visite nuestro sitio web.
