Over 100 possible Swine Flu or H1N1 cases in Lubbock

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - More than 100-recent cases of flu in Lubbock are believed to be Swine Flu or H1N1. However, at this time they are not confirmed as the H1N1 virus by lab tests.

Currently, the Lubbock Health Department is not conducting tests for the H1N1 virus. University Medical Center Vice President Greg Bruce says because of the time of year it is presumed these recent cases are H1N1 and not seasonal flu.

If you or someone you care for is high-risk for flu, the Lubbock Health Department will offer the seasonal Influenza shots this Tuesday, September 15th from 9 a.m. until 12 p.m. at the Health Department Auditorium located at 19th St. and Texas Avenue. The cost is $20 per person.

Medicare will be accepted. High risk adults include, but are not limited to pregnant women, people over age 50, caregivers of children under six-months, and caregivers of high risk adults.
