Free Vaccination Program Aims to Keep Refugee/Immigrant Populations Healthy

The Northlake Rotary Club's 7th Annual Immigrant Influenza Vaccination Project will provide free influenza vaccination's on October 8

The Northlake Rotary Club will host its 7th Annual Immigrant Influenza Vaccination Project in partnership with DeKalb Medical on Saturday, October 8, 2011 from 10:00 until 2:00 PM.  Targeted for persons aged 50 years and older, the program aims to increase vaccination rates in refugee/immigrant populations in the Clarkston community. We vaccinated 507 Clarkston Refugees last year and we hope to top that number this year.

Northlake Rotarians will plan, organize, and coordinate the free vaccination clinic in cooperation with the DeKalb Medical “Wellness on Wheels” program.  "Wellness on Wheels" is a mobile unit that moves from site to site providing health screening and specific medical services.  Professional personnel from DeKalb Medical will administer the vaccine.

The documents that must me signed prior to administering the flu shots will be collected in the Chapel, and the "Wellness on Wheels" RV will be located in the parking lot behind the Chapel at the Clarkston International Bible Church.
