Hamilton Co. clinic offers 300 doses

The Hamilton County General Health District has about 300 doses of the flu vaccine that it will distribute at a public clinic Oct. 27. But you must call today between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. to make a reservation, and you must fall into one of the high-risk categories. Those include: people 65 years of age and older; people age 9-64 with underlying chronic medical conditions; pregnant women; and children 9-18 who take aspirin daily. The pediatric vaccine is not available at this clinic. The clinic runs between 9 a.m. and noon at 4300 Springdale Road, Colerain Township. Reservations: (513) 347-3273. Information: www.hamiltoncountyhealth.org. Also, Fort Hamilton Hospital has exhausted its flu-vaccine supply and has canceled its vaccination dates. The cancelled clinic dates were both Monday at Fitton YMCA and at the Center for Health and Wellness at the East Butler YMCA.

Crowley delivers city's endorsement

Cincinnati City Councilman David Crowley said Thursday he wanted to spare the city from a lawsuit when he personally delivered to Cincinnati Public Schools a council resolution endorsing the school district's renewal levy. The anti-tax group Coalition Opposed to Additional Spending and Taxes filed a request Thursday for a temporary restraining order to stop the city. An attorney for the group said Wednesday that the resolution violates the city charter, which prohibits spending city money to campaign for a levy. The argument, Crowley said, was over the 37 cents it would cost to mail the resolution to the district. So, he said, he drove it there himself to prevent the city from having to pay hundreds of dollars in legal fees over the cost of a stamp.

How Seinfeld became 'Seinfeld'
