Swine Flu Fears Fading

Fort Worth clinics closing January 31.

Fort Worth will shutdown its H1N1 vaccination clinics by the end of the month.

Tarrant County's health department announced a decreased demand for the vaccine will allow it to close six shopping center store front locations on January 31. The spaces were leased through January and the department has decided not to spend more tax money to renew the leases.

Since October, Tarrant County Public Health has provided 60,000 vaccinations at its store fronts.    

Free H1N1 vaccinations will still be available in the county's seven public health center locations.

Beginning Tuesday, the department is partnering with the Fort Worth Independent School District to provide vaccinations from 4 to 7 p.m. at these high schools:

·         Jan. 19 — Carter-Riverside cafeteria, 3301 Yucca Ave.; and Arlington Heights cafeteria, 4501 West Freeway
