In many cities and towns across Massachusetts, local public health and school officials are working together on various ways they might use school facilities to adminster flu vaccine to students. Yesterday, CDC released a very useful series of tools and resources to help in that planning process. There's a whole range of materials and templates here for everyone who might be involved in planning for school-based vaccination — from state and local public health leaders, to educational staff and school nurses.

More guidance documents are expected from CDC this week, this time related to H1N1 (swine) flu planning for small businesses. Keep an eye on this space for more details.
