COLUMBUS, Ohio — Blacks in Columbus are nearly three times as likely as whites to be hospitalized with H1N1, according to a study that has public-health officials looking for more ways to vaccinate minorities.
Columbus Public Health will begin vaccinating students at Columbus elementary schools on Monday, said Commissioner Dr. Theresa Long, and free vaccination clinics will continue at the health department.
