Uptown Physicians Group has received an allotment of the vaccine, but they are reserving the doses for their patients only.
Dr. Steven Pounders has H1N1 vaccine available for existing patients. Appointments are necessary.
Dr. Nicolas Bellos’ office said to check next week.
Dr. Jaime Vasquez’s office has not received their allotment yet.
