H1N1 vaccination clinics
School vaccination clinics for the second H1N1 vaccine will begin in the Marshall County School District next week, January 12-14. The second vaccine will be offered to students age nine and under as recommended by the Mississippi Department of Health.
The effort will be a partnership between Health First Clinic of Byhalia, Hickory Flat Family Clinic and the Marshall County School District.
The shots are not mandatory and the decision to do so is left completely in the hands of the parents.
January 12 -- Mary Reid and Potts Camp.
January 13 -- Byhalia Elementary, Middle, and High.
January 14 -- Galena and H.W. Byers.
In order to be vaccinated, the child must turn in a completed and signed parental consent form. Shots will then be administered only to enrolled students. The vaccine is free.
We hope providing school clinics will be helpful for parents who would like to have their children vaccinated. We recognize that not all students will choose to take advantage of this offer, and we will respect the individual discretion exercised by families.
It is important that families review the Health Department and the CDC Web sites to assist in making the best decision for their families. For more information, go to www.cdc.gov
