In 2014, the New Hampshire Immunization Program (NHIP) partnered with eight Public Health Networks to organize school-based influenza immunization clinics.  These clinics were held in the North Country, Upper Valley, Central NH, Carroll County, Greater Sullivan, Winnipesaukee, Capital Area, and Strafford County regions of the state.  The clinics were an overwhelming success – vaccinating over 7,200 students from 130 schools against influenza!

The Public Health Networks worked with the school nurses to schedule clinic times, distribute and collect consent forms, and ensure a safe clinic environment.  The NHIP provided the vaccines along with financial and technical support.

Parents appreciated the clinics because they didn't have to miss work to get their child immunized.  School nurses liked it because their school had less illness during the 2014-2015 season.

In the Fall of 2015, the NHIP and Public Health Networks will continue offering school-based clinics.  If your school would like more information about holding a clinic in the Fall, please call (603) 271-4482.

Hats off to all who participated in the 2014-2015 school-based clinics and contributed to the high immunization rates!
