H1N1 Vaccine in Lake Ridge

 

When: Monday, Dec. 14 and Tuesday, Dec.15, 2009

Where: Longfellow Elementary Gymnasium

Time: 4:00 - 7:00 p.m.

Who: See Below   (Bring attached permission slip)

 

Pregnant womenbecause they are at higher risk of complications and can potentially provide protection to infants who cannot be vaccinated.

 

Household contacts and caregivers for children younger than 6 months of agebecause younger infants are at higher risk of influenza-related complications and cannot be vaccinated. Vaccination of those in close contact with infants less than 6 months old might help protect infants by "cocooning" them from the virus.

 

Healthcare and emergency medical services personnelbecause infections among healthcare workers have been reported and this can be a potential source of infection for vulnerable patients. Also, increased absenteeism among healthcare professionals could reduce healthcare system capacity.

 

All people from 6 months through 24 years of age

 

Children from 6 months through 18 years of agebecause there have been many cases of H1N1 (Swine) flu in children and they are in close contact with each other in school and day care settings, which increases the likelihood of disease spread.

 

Young adults 19 through 24 years of agebecause there have been many cases of H1N1 (Swine) flu in these healthy young adults and they often live, work, and study in close proximity, and they are a frequently mobile population.

 

Persons aged 25 through 64 years who have health conditions associated with higher risk of medical complications from influenza.
