HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) - February 11 and February 12 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. the Southeast Public Health District will hold a "fast lane" swine flu vaccination clinic free to senior citizens.

H1N1 Swine Flu outbreaks have remained at a low level for the past few months, but the Mississippi State Health Department anticipates another wave of illness soon.

State Health Official Thomas Dobbs said a large percentage of the Pine Belt population has not received the H1N1 vaccine.

Seniors in Covington, Forrest, Greene, Jeff Davis, Jones, Lamar, Marion, Perry and Wayne Counties are all urged to drop by the county clinic and get vaccinated.
