DC has lifted the restrictions on who may receive the H1N1 (swine flu, bacon lung, hamthrax) vaccination, as has Maryland. (Virginia residents are still slightly restricted, but people younger than 50 can generally get it.)

H1N1 cases have been down slightly recently, but a resurgence is expected in January/February, so it’s a good time to get your shot. DC will be offering a free clinic at the Fort Davis Community Center in Southeast from 5-9PM today. If that doesn’t work for you, your doctor or pharmacist (yes, pharmacist, if your pharmacy offers immunization services) can vaccinate you, but you’ll be charged for the administration, so check with your insurance to see what your coverage situation is.
