Any School Nurse's out there giving H1N1 vaccinations ?


Just wondering if any of you have been asked to help the public health dept. in giving H1N1 vaccines when they become available ??

We have been asked to participate in flu-shot clinics, some of which will be held in our buildings.

I have not, and I hope they do not ask us to. I have an elementary school, and I just know that as soon as word gets out that the nurse gives shots, none of the little ones will ever want to come to my office again!!! But, I do see the benefit of having it at the school, so I would participate if necessary.

I work in a private school in Virginia (Pre-K - 8). Yes, the health department contacted me to help with H1N1 vaccinations and I agreed. However we are not doing them here at our school.

I just found out this morning that our health department is providing a free vaccination clinic at our school as soon as the vaccine is available to us. I'm very excited. I think our school and parents will appriciate our efforts at prevention and vigilance.
