BURLINGTON – The Vermont Department of Health has been notifying a number of schools today that H1N1 vaccine clinics that had been planned to take place next week will be postponed, due to the limited supply of vaccine in the state. Schools that are participating in the vaccination effort will be notifying parents about changes in clinic scheduling.

Of 49 clinics that had been scheduled for the week of Oct. 26, 19 have been postponed. A list of the schools with clinics scheduled next week that have been postponed will be posted on the Health Department's website at www.healthvermont.gov.

"Our goal is to offer vaccine first to those groups of people who need it most, including school-age children, as vaccine continues to come into the state" said Health Commissioner Wendy Davis, MD. "The delay is challenging for everyone, and we will be working with schools to reschedule in the coming weeks, as vaccine supply allows."

Extensive information, tools and resources about seasonal and pandemic flu, healthy habits and preparedness are available at the Health Department’s website: healthvermont.gov or dial 2-1-1. You can also follow us on Twitter at twitter.com/healthvermont.
