H1N1 education meetings start tonight

by Janjeera Hail

The first of four meetings to educate parents on the H1N1 vaccine is being held tonight at Okkodo high school for the Lagu district. Public Health will begin administering the vaccine to those students who want it in the next few weeks. H1N1 Public Information Officer Cindy Hanson says parents are urged to attend the meetings to make an informed decision on whether or not to have their child vaccinated.

According to Hanson, "It's really important to have all the education you can. There's two types of vaccines that are available right now, that's the nasal mist and the injectable and children fall into certain categories of which one they're going to be eligible to get."

Meetings will be held at Tamuning elementary for the Luchan district tomorrow, on Thursdsay at GW for the Kattan district and on Friday evening at Southern high for the Haya district.
Those meetings will start at 6 P.M.
