2009 H1N1 Flu Shots for Students at High Risk and Limited Supply of 2009 H1N1 Nasal Spray Flu Vaccine for Students with No Health Problems

Monday Nov 9, 2-4 p.m. and Tuesday Nov 10, 10-11:30 a.m., Hampshire Health Services will have H1N1 Flu Vaccine Walk-in Clinics for students age 24 and younger who are at high risk for flu complications. The H1N1 flu vaccine is free and no appointment is needed. There are also limited supplies of the 2009 H1N1 Nasal Spray Vaccine for students with no health problems.

Please do not call Health Services because we are currently swamped with phone calls related to ill students. If you have questions about H1N1 vaccines please go to the CDC’s H1N1 Vaccination website.

High risk students will be given the 2009 H1N1 flu shot. Students at high risk for complications of H1N1 flu are those who are pregnant, or who have asthma, diabetes, cerebral palsy, chronic heart, lung, or kidney problems, or are taking medications which suppress the immune system.

We have a limited amount of the 2009 H1N1 nasal spray flu vaccine which can be given to students who do not have any high risk health problems. Student who want this vaccine can come during the walk-in clinic times. We expect to receive more vaccine over the next few weeks and will then be able to vaccinate all students.
