The Marion County Health Department and MSD of Lawrence Township will hold two H1N1 flu clinics for township students. Lawrence Township was among several school systems that wanted its students vaccinated outside of regular school hours.
Kindergarten through 5th grade students enrolled in Lawrence Township schools will be vaccinated Saturday, November 21, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Lawrence North High School Fieldhouse.
Middle and high school students enrolled in Lawrence Township schools will be vaccinated Saturday, December 5, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Lawrence North High School Fieldhouse. The fieldhouse is located at 7802 Hague Road.
The clinics are for Lawrence Township students only. This clinic is not for the general public.
Students coming to the clinics must be accompanied by a parent or guardian, are asked to eat beforehand, wear short sleeve shirts and be prepared to wait in long lines.
Consent forms will be sent home with students prior to the clinics. The forms must be completed and signed in order for the student to receive a vaccination. Forms will be available at the clinics. If the form is completed prior to the clinic it will greatly expedite the vaccination process and reduce wait times.
Those with questions can contact the Marion County Health Department Flu Helpline at 221-3366. The helpline is available Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. until 5 p.m.
