Open Letter to Logan County Nurses

          Due to the 2009 novel H1N1 influenza pandemic, the Logan County Department of Public Health (LCDPH) is proceeding to plan for mass immunizations in the event that this should become necessary. It is anticipated that the CDC will recommend vaccination of as many people in the five priority groups as possible and as quickly as possible. The LCDPH has registered to receive the vaccine for the novel H1N1 flu when it becomes available, perhaps as early as the mid October.

          Since this mass vaccination will occur at the same time as vaccination for seasonal flu, additional nurses may be needed to assist with the administration of flu vaccines, particularly if mass immunization efforts become necessary at various clinic sites within a few short days.

          The LCDPH is compiling a list of Registered Nurses who would be interested in assisting with the administration of vaccines for financial compensation while under temporary employment with the LCDPH. If you are interested in assisting, please call the LCDPH at 217-735-2317.
