On Monday, September 30, 2013, we kicked off our county-wide school-based flu vaccine program at Carpenter School and Crescent Lake School in Wolfeboro, where we vaccinated more than 125 school aged children.
In all, 14 public schools in Carroll County will participate in the program, which runs until mid-November. The program is a collaborative effort between us, the Carroll County Medical Reserve Corps, and the New Hampshire Immunization Program.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends a yearly flu vaccine for everyone 6 months of age and older as the first and most important step in protecting against this serious disease.
The school-based flu clinic program is a convenient and affordable way for parents and guardians to make sure their children are protected.
For information about upcoming school-based flu vaccine clinics in Carroll County, contact Jim at firstname.lastname@example.org or 603-301-1252.
