The Iowa Department of Public Health (IDPH) today announced that beginning Monday, December 14, 2009, all Iowans will be eligible to receive an H1N1 flu vaccination.

While H1N1 vaccinations will be available to all Iowans beginning Monday, IDPH continues to encourage those at highest risk of complications to make sure they are vaccinated.

Public health officials predict that another wave of H1N1 illness will occur during the usual time Iowa sees the highest rates of influenza activity – late January and February.
