H1N1 shipping trash; the ice packs cometh

Posted: Updated:

KENNEWICK, Wash.--  Thousands of doses of the H1N1 vaccine are coming into the health district, along with boxes, coolers and hundreds of ice packs to keep the vaccine cold. 

To help put those ice packs to good use; the district gave them to a local sporting goods store.

The store is giving them away for free to mom's for children's lunchboxes and to local grid kid teams.    

The ice packs will keep on coming too.

The health district hopes shipment sizes of the vaccine to double sometime soon.
