Yes.

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.
