Dane County students will soon have the opportunity to receive the H1N1 vaccine at their schools. Public health officials have identified students as the first group that should be given priority to receive the vaccine after health care workers.
Now that the H1N1 vaccine has arrived in Wisconsin, that means 80,000 K-12 students in Dane County will begin receiving it. Public Health of Madison and Dane County will start the five week program on Monday. Students at Northside Elementary School in Middleton will be the first to get the shots, which are not mandatory.
