ALBANY, GA (WALB) - A top U.S. Health official says the risk of not getting an H1-N1 vaccine is greater than any risk from the vaccine. Southwest Georgia is expected to get more of the vaccine this week.
Southwest Georgia health district officials aren't sure whether the next delivery will be more nasal mist or the H1-N1 shot. It could arrive at some health departments as soon as Tuesday.
Southwest Georgia parents have been hesitant to give the nasal mist to their two-to-four year old healthy children because it is a live virus, but health officials say parents shouldn't worry. It's perfectly safe.
