A new ABC News-Washington Post poll also finds just 35 percent of adults plan on getting vaccinated. But Dan Sherbon is bucking the trend, waiting in a long line to get the vaccine. The alternative to the vaccine is death, he said. The Franklin County Health Department will distribute 200 doses of H1N1 swine flu vaccine to young children tonight. Health director Midge Ransom said the vaccines, which are in in nasal mist form, will be given to children between the ages of 2 and 5 tonight on a first come-first serve basis.The vaccination clinic will be 4 to 7 at the commission chambers in the county annex. Children should be healthy and not have had a fever 24 hours before the vaccination, she said. To get the vaccine, children should not have any underlying medical conditions, not be allergic to eggs, nor have had any reactions to past flu vaccines or be on aspirin therapy, she said.
