Nobles-Rock to offer H1N1 vaccine clinics in schools

WORTHINGTON - Nobles-Rock Community Health Services will offer H1N1 vaccine clinics for children in preschool through 12th grade Friday in Ellsworth and Hills-Beaver Creek schools and Monday in Adrian and Round Lake-Brewster schools.

The clinics will begin at 9 a.m. and go until the vaccine has been distributed to all eligible clients or until the vaccine is gone, whichever comes first. Only vaccine shots will available, not the nasal spray.

Information about the vaccines will be sent through the school districts and each child will need a signed consent form before the vaccine can be given. The clinics will be a cooperative effort between school district staff and public health staff.

The clinics will not be open to the general public, but Nobles-Rock Community Health Services is planning more in-school clinics as well as community clinics by the end of December and early January.

Call Nobles-Rock Community Health at (507) 295-5272 for more information.
