King County public health officials expect H1N1 flu, or swine flu, to spread. Public Health – Seattle & King County officials encourage people to get vaccinated. Starting Saturday, providers will offer another round of free vaccines for people unable to pay.

The vaccine is now available to everyone in King County older than 6 months. Officials recommend the vaccine most for pregnant women, people who live with or care for children younger than 6, people between the ages of 6 months and 24 years, people between 25 through 64 with chronic health conditions or weakened immune systems, and healthcare and emergency workers.

H1N1 vaccine is distributed to many health care providers and local pharmacies. Find pharmacy locations here, or call the Flu Hotline, 877-903-5464.
