Plans for H1N1 Vaccine Clinics In Every Louisville School Outlined

Health department officials announced today their plans for running H1N1 vaccine clinics at all the schools in Jefferson County over a three week period. They’re touting the effort as the largest school immunization project since the Salk Polio Vaccine trial in the 1950’s.Health Department Director Dr. Adewale Troutman says all 135 JCPS schools and all the parochial schools and private schools in Louisville will have a chance to have their students and staff inoculated at an on-site clinic. He says the need to have school-age children vaccinated is still high.“While there is some evidence nationally, and we’ve heard about this in the last several days, that doctor’s visit and hospitalizations from H1N1 have gone down, in the last few weeks I would remind us that H1N1 flu activity in 43 states, including Kentucky, remains widespread," says Troutman.He adds they have no idea how many doses will be needed for the three-week effort that begins Monday. But he’s confident they’ll have enough of the vaccine for the need.“We have quite a bit on hand at the moment, and every week we have to go through a process of putting in an order, and then having it sent to us by UPS," says Troutman, "and over the last few weeks, we’ve seen the regularity and the number of doses dramatically increase, which is why we feel we’ll have enough to get through this particular cycle.”Troutman says parents are welcome to visit their child’s school to help their child through the process, and some organizations are volunteering their help.“A couple of the local PTAs have told me they’re organizing volunteers from the PTA to come to their schools to assist us in that effort, if a child needs a hand held or supported in some way, local PTAs are starting to come to the fore and say ‘we’ll be there to help those kids’," he says.Parents will have to have returned a permission slip to the school for their child to receive the vaccination. A JCPS representative says they’ve already received about 27-thousand permission slips.Dates subject to change due to vaccine supply.Day 1 11/30/09Myers MiddleCarruthers MiddleChenoweth ElementaryJaeger PreschoolJefferson County HighFern Creek ElementaryJeffersontown ElementaryFern Creek HighValley HighDixie ElementaryCenter @ RiverportKerrick ElementarySt. AgnesDay 2 12/1/09Gilmore Lane ElementaryCochrane ElementaryBarrett Traditional MiddleSt. PatrickDawson Orman Early ChildJefferson County HighSt. AthanasiusStuart MiddleOlmsted Academy NorthAtherton HighCochran ElementaryLayne ElementaryDay 3 12/2/09Newburg MiddleTully ElementaryAscension HighEastern HighHite ElementaryShelby ElementarySt. EdwardPRP HighGreenwood ElementaryLassiter MiddleFarnsley MiddleGreathouse-ShryockDay 4 12/3/09Gutermuth ElementaryWheeler ElementarySt. Matthews ElementaryBreckinridge-Franklin ElementaryBloom ElementarySouthern HighSt. MichaelFrost MiddleSt. PaulSt. Albert the GreatSemple ElementaryDay 5 12/4/09Thomas Jefferson MiddleJeffersontown HighMercy AcademyChancey ElementaryBrandeis ElementaryLaukhuf ElementaryWilkerson ElementaryLouisville Male HighStonestreet ElementaryYoung ElementaryBreckinridge Metro HighKennedy Metro MiddleAssumptionSt. RaphaelDay 6 12/7/09Seneca HighHoly FamilyCrosby MiddleCentral HighBates ElementaryMedora ElementarySt. Francis Desales HighSt. JamesOlmsted Academy SouthIroquois HighJefferson County HighDay 7 12/8/09Watterson ElementaryHoly SpiritMiddletown ElementaryNativity ACAD @ St. BonifaceMoore High & MiddleSmyrna ElementaryKenwood ElementaryWestern HighWaller Williams EnvironmentSt. LeonardFoster ElementarySchacklette ElementaryDay 8 12/9/09Slaughter ElementaryHoly TrinityStopher ElementaryShawnee/The Academy HighKnight MiddleBlue Lick ElementarySt. Andrew AcademyMill Creek ElementarySt. Margaret MaryRutherford ElementaryKennedy ElementaryDay 9 12/10/09John Paul II AcademyNorton ElementaryZachary Taylor ElementaryJefferson County Trade MiddleFarmer ElementaryRamsey MiddleFairdale HighButler Traditional Tech HighSt. Mary AcademyLincoln ElementaryCane Run ElementaryDay 10 12/11/09St. GabrielOur Lady of LourdesMeyzeek MiddleOkolona ElementaryWatson Lane ElementaryConway MiddleSt. Nicholas Academy SouthMaupin ElementarySchaffner ElementaryMcFerran ElementaryMary Ryan AcademyIndian Trail ElementaryDay 11 12/14/09St. MarthaWilder ElementarySt. RitaKing ElementaryLuhr ElementaryDoss HighTrunnell ElementaryNotre Dame AcademySt. BernardWestport Trade MiddleHoly Cross HighDay 12 12/15/09Crums Lane ElementaryHawthorne ElementarySt. Xavier High SchoolWilt ElementaryAuburndale ElementaryCamp Taylor ElementarySt. Stephen MartyrCarter Traditional ElementaryDuvalle Educational CenterMinors Lane ElementarySanders ElementaryLowe ElementaryDay 13 12/16/09Sacred Heart AcademySacred Heart Model SchoolWestern MiddleBlake ElementaryEisenhower ElementaryAudubon Traditional ElementaryTrinity HighBrown SchoolAhren’s Educational ResourcesDunn ElementaryBowen ElementaryJohnson Traditional MiddleDay 14 12/17/09Highland MiddleByck ElementaryHartstern ElementaryJohnsontown Road ElementaryField ElementaryKammerer MiddleWaggener HighSt. Francis of AssissiCollegiate JKPitt AcademyPresentationDay 15 12/18/09St. Nicholas Academy NorthBallard HighNoe MiddleDuPont Manual/Ypas HighNorthside Christian SchoolOur Savior Lutheran SchoolMontessori School of LouisvilleKentucky Country Day
