Anne Arundel County Department of Health, School System Partner

To Provide site for Free H1N1 Vaccination Clinics

Nine Anne Arundel County high schools will be used as sites for free H1N1 vaccination clinics beginning on December 1, 2009, as part of Anne Arundel County Public Schools’ ongoing partnership with the Anne Arundel County Department of Health to prevent the spread of the H1N1 influenza. The sites are located throughout the county on each of three days to allow residents in all parts of the county easier access to them.


County Executive John R. Leopold said, “I have strongly supported having H1N1 flu vaccine clinics at school buildings as part of the partnership between the County Department of Health and Public Schools. The clinics are an efficient way to offer vaccine to residents around the County in the targeted priority groups. Through our award-winning flu prevention initiatives, Anne Arundel County has demonstrated that we are able to provide quality public health services to our community.”

“We have been working very closely with the Health Department since last spring to develop plans to address issues associated with the H1N1 virus and help residents across the county get access to vaccines as soon as they become available,” Schools Superintendent Kevin M. Maxwell said. “This has been – and continues to be – a great partnership that is benefiting adults and children alike. Using our schools as clinic sites allows residents far easier access to the vaccines than would otherwise be available.”
Vaccinations will be administered to the following target groups as identified by the national Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC):
  • Pregnant women
  • People between 6 months and 24 years old
  • People who live with or care for children under 6 months of age
  • Health care and emergency medical services personnel
  • People ages 25 to 64 who have chronic health disorders or compromised immune systems

The clinics will be open from 4:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. No one may arrive to line up for a vaccine before 3:00 p.m. on the day of the clinic. Clinics will be held in the cafeteria at the following schools:

  • Broadneck High School, 1265 Green Holly Drive, Arnold

Clinics will be held based on availability of vaccine. There will be no make-up dates if a clinic site is canceled for any reason.
