Health Dept. to provide H1N1 vaccines to NKY schools

Posted by Trina Edwards - email

COVINGTON, KY (FOX19) - The Northern Kentucky Health Department begins H1N1 vaccinations in schools on Monday.

Staff from the Northern Kentucky Health Department will be administering the swine flu vaccination to students and staff in local schools starting on Monday, Nov. 30 at Holmes High School.

"The swine flu vaccination effort is bigger than any we've seen before," said Steven R. Katkowsky, M.D., District Director of Health. "In trying to vaccinate as many people as possible, partnering with schools was a logical choice. School children are more likely to become infected with the swine flu and are at higher risk for complications. By vaccinating children in the schools, we can hopefully provide much-needed protection for a serious illness."

All school districts in Boone, Campbell, Grant and Kenton counties were invited to participate in the vaccination effort. The Health Department is providing packets, including information and consent forms, to the schools to distribute to parents. Only students who have signed consent forms will be given the vaccine.

The schedule is as follows:

 

Nov. 30, Holmes High School

Dec. 1, Immaculate Heart of Mary

Dec. 1, Walton Verona High School

Dec. 2, Covington Catholic High School

Dec. 2, Dayton Independent Schools
