The Long Beach Unified School District will host another clinic where children can receive free H1N1 (swine flu) vaccinations from 3:30 to 7 p.m. on Tuesday, Dec. 1 at Poly High School, 1600 Atlantic Ave., Long Beach.
The Poly clinic will serve children ages 3 to 18. Parents and guardians must accompany their children and sign consent forms in person. The supply of vaccines will be limited.
The clinic will be held by the Long Beach Department of Health and Human Services. Similar clinics, held recently at Cabrillo, Jordan, Wilson and Millikan high schools and at the Long Beach Convention Center, have attracted thousands of parents and their children.
The school district has worked closely with the city’s Health Department to plan the local clinics. LBUSD, however, is neither requiring nor recommending H1N1 vaccination for students but is simply hosting clinics for parents’ convenience.
Anyone with questions about the vaccine should speak with their doctor.
