We are pleased to announce that Cattaraugus County will be offering an H1N1 Clinic here on Saturday, November 7, 2009 from 9:00 am to 12:00 pm. Vaccines will be available on a first come, first served basis to any RCS enrolled school children. There is no cost to the family and the child must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian.
Unfortunately, the vaccine is not available to younger or older siblings who are NOT enrolled at RCS. We will have school personnel on hand to help the County and to help comfort our children.
I can’t help but remember my own trip as a small child to a vaccine clinic in the late sixties for small pox. I remember gripping my mother’s hand and standing in a long line. Let’s work together to make this a manageable experience for our children. If you have any questions, please call me or either of our school nurses, Sharon O’Neill and Lottie Abers.
