Howard County has obtained 3,000 doses of flu vaccine for high-risk people, county health officials announced yesterday.

The Health Department has not scheduled dates for vaccine clinics, but it will do so in the next few days, Howard County Health Officer Penny Borenstein said in a news release.

The vaccine will be offered only to people in high-risk groups - including those over 65, those with serious chronic medical conditions and pregnant women. Proof of county residence and certification of those conditions will be required.
