Story from the Field


Name of Health Department/Agency: Sedgwick County Health Department
State: KS
Date Added: 12/28/2009
Themes: Vaccine Planning and Administration
Issue Summary: Holiday Vaccination Clinics
Description of Issue(s):
Actions taken to address the issue(s): We set up mobile clinics at two shopping malls in Wichita, KS, during the last two Saturday shopping days before the holiday. We used the malls because of the volume of shoppers this time of year. We had individuals from the Health Department hand out flyers that read "Don't want H1N1 this holiday season? Get vaccinated!" and directed mall patrons to the clinic.
Outcomes that resulted from actions taken: This outreach effort was successful; the Health Department vaccinated several hundred individuals at these mall clinics.
