Health officials want the general public to remain vigilant about warding off influenza, whether it's the seasonal flu or H1N1.Davis County Health Department is offering vaccines at its two clinics, said Bob Ballew, the health department spokesman. It will no longer offer mass clinics unless the need arises.
Weber-Morgan Health Department is taking flu vaccines to schools and Weber State University this week.
Bear River Health Department offers vaccines at its two health department offices.
Lewis Garrett, director of Davis County Health, said it was necessary in October to organize mass clinics for the H1N1 vaccine because of the high demand.
But even his health officials were surprised by the number of people who showed up hours before the clinics opened to get themselves and their children vaccinated.
As of Jan. 12, almost 25 percent of the Davis County population had received H1N1 vaccines, Garrett said.
Garrett said even with that many people vaccinated, the third wave of H1N1 could be worse than the last two waves.
Lori Buttars, spokeswoman for Weber-Morgan Health Department, said there were no hospitalizations connected to influenza during years 2004 to 2008 in Weber County.
But in 2009, 33 people were hospitalized in June and 16 in July.
"We know the virus was hostile in the off-season, and we're hoping it doesn't happen again," Buttars said.
