UNLV H1N1 Vaccine Clinic



November 12, 2009 9:00 AM
The
following is a message from the Student Wellness Center for the UNLV
Campus Community regarding the H1N1 Vaccine. Normally, announcements
are only posted regarding WebCampus, however, due to the impact H1N1 is
having on the country an exception has been made.


Dear members of the University of Nevada, Las Vegas community:
The Student Wellness Center
received a limited amount, 200 doses, of H1N1 vaccine. We have both the
inhaled and injectable versions of the vaccine. The first H1N1 vaccine
clinic will be held on November 12, 2009 from 10:00 am -12:00 pm in the
Student Wellness Center on the first floor of the Student Recreation
and Wellness Center. The clinic will last as long as the vaccine is
available and the vaccine will be offered free of charge as a community
service. Following CDC guidelines for vaccine distribution, these
initial doses will be targeted to community members at greatest risk as
follows:


  • those who are pregnant
  • those who care for infants under 6 months old
  • those who are health care providers
  • those 24 years and younger
  • those
    25 to 64 who have underlying health conditions. Chronic medical
    conditions that confer a higher risk for influenza-related
    complications include chronic pulmonary (including asthma),
    cardiovascular (except hypertension), renal, hepatic, cognitive,
    neurologic/neuromuscular, hematologic, or metabolic disorders
    (including diabetes mellitus) or immunosuppression (including
    immunosuppression caused by medications or by human immunodeficiency
    virus).


As more vaccine becomes available
to us, we will make it available to additional members of the campus
community. In the meantime, we urge all members of the UNLV to
community to:


  • Practice respiratory
    etiquette by covering your mouth and nose with a tissue when you cough
    or sneeze. If you don’t have a tissue, cough or sneeze into your elbow
    or shoulder, not into your hands. Avoid touching your eyes, nose, or
    mouth; germs are spread this way.

  • Practice
    good hand hygiene by washing your hands with soap and water, especially
    after coughing or sneezing. Alcohol-based hand cleaners also are
    effective.

  • Stay
    home if you have flu or flu-like illness for at least 24 hours after
    you no longer have a fever 100 degrees Fahrenheit or signs of a fever
    (have chills, feel very warm, have a flushed appearance, or are
    sweating). This should be determined without the use of fever-reducing
    medications (any medicine that contains ibuprofen or acetaminophen).
