A sincere thank you from the Yarmouth school nurses to the many volunteers who, once again, helped us make our seasonal flu vaccine clinics so successful.

From the nurses who gave the shots, to the crowd-control experts, right down to the cheerful and enthusiastic volunteers who checked students in at the door, the teamwork was outstanding.

Although there wasn’t the “media hype” of last year’s H1N1 crisis, there is evidence that families are following the CDC’s recommendation, and taking advantage of the opportunity to vaccinate their school-age children to prevent the spread of the influenza virus.

We were able to vaccinate nearly 50 percent  of our students with your help. According to statistics, that should significantly reduce the number of students and faculty missing school because of influenza.

We are very fortunate to live and work in a community that supports our schools and our students, and we are very grateful.
