Schools To Be Mass Vaccination Clinics
POSTED: September 17, 2009
WHEELING - Local schools and universities in Ohio County are expected to be used as sites for mass swine flu vaccination clinics this fall.
Howard Gamble, Wheeling-Ohio County Health Department administrator, said Wednesday he expects to announce by the end of this month when and where the clinics will be held.
On Friday, Gamble, Nursing Supervisor Becky Beckett, Threat Preparedness Coordinator Wayland Harris and Epidemiologist Michael Makowski are scheduled to attend an H1N1, or swine flu, training session in Charleston by West Virginia Bureau for Public Health officials. During the nine-hour session, public health officials will learn more about running mass vaccination clinics. They also will learn more about curbing swine flu and other disease outbreaks in the community, and about when and how the swine flu vaccine will be distributed to county health departments.
The vaccine is expected to be ready for distribution by the federal government in mid-October.
"A mass inoculation has not been seen in this country since 1976," Gamble said. "Our goal is to within five weeks inoculate as many people as we can."
When people arrive for their shots, they will get an ID bracelet with a barcode. Next, basic information - name, age, gender, address - will be entered into the patient tracking database. There will be electronic records, too, of who gave the vaccine and whether it was injected into the right arm or the left, and time-stamped for that day.

I understand that Germany tried something like this a few years back.
Here was their prototype for the bracelets they want to use.
