The Jefferson County Public School district is planning three weeks of H1N1 vaccine clinics for students starting November 30th.
JCPS Coordinator of Health Services Bonnie Ciarroccki says officials don’t know how many doses of H1N1 vaccine they’ll have to distribute. The health department is supplying the vaccine.
Ciarroccki says they plan to vaccinate schools throughout the district over the three-week period.
“That way we’re not hitting all the south end schools, or the east end schools or the west end schools, but we have a mixture of schools on a daily basis,” says Ciarroccki.
Permission slips are in the mail now for parents of JCPS students. If they want their child to receive the vaccine, they must sign the forms and return them to their school.
Ciarroccki says the clinics will run through December 18th, but will have to be extended if they don’t have enough doses.
