Northside ISD has announced the H1N1 vaccination schedule for elementary school students under the age of 10 who need to receive a second dose of the vaccine.
A letter is being sent to all parents of affected elementary schools and also is posted on the flu information web site.
The District will release a vaccination schedule for additional elementary schools as soon as more vaccine becomes available through the San Antonio Metro Health District.
Northside ISD's free vaccinations against the H1N1 flu for qualified students will continue. Only those students whose parents provide permission will be vaccinated and only registered Northside students will be eligible.
San Antonio Metro Health is telling us now that there may not be sufficient quantities of the vaccine to run school-based shot clinics until November.
We did think that we would begin vaccinations this week or next week, but we are now told the vaccine has not arrived in the state in terms of the quantity that is needed to begin the school vaccinations.
While we have seen that the Novel H1N1 virus has become wide spread across the globe, the severity of the illness for most cases has fortunately been mild.... Given this pattern of illness the national Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and state and local health departments have shifted emphasis of activities from individual case finding to a focus on community-wide prevention strategies including preparations for vaccination.
Northside ISD is seeking trained and licensed volunteers to administer flu shots to inoculate students against the H1N1 flu, also known as swine flu.
In Northside, we have worked with local public health agencies to plan for contingencies if the flu does become widespread in our community. In all of these plans, we have tried to balance health and safety requirements with the educational and social needs of our students and families.
Parents, employees, and community members can now have access to late breaking news and events about Northside ISD by signing up to receive text message or email alerts.
Northside ISD has established this web site in order to keep students, staff, parents, and community members up to date on developments related to the H1N1 virus, also known as swine flu. The latest information available always will be posted on this web site. Alerts will also be posted to NISD's Twitter page.
All students, parents, and families are urged to follow good hygiene habits and common sense.
