Vaccine/ Influenza Prevention





History Logs

Project Description

Country: USA

Location: Gillettee, Wyoming

Total Budget: $7,000

Area of Focus: Disease prevention and treatment

Activity Type: Health: Disease

Summary: Provide Influenza Vaccinations to approximately 2000 students in Campbell County School District, Gillette, Wyoming.

This is an ongoing project that is fully supported by all the members of the Gillette Energy Rotary. The focus of the project is to prevent influenza in as many school children as possible each year. In 2020-2021, 2000 students received the vaccinations. The Center for Disease Control recommends a yearly flu vaccination as the first and most important step in protecting against flu and its potentially serious complications. This project would provide flu vaccinations for any school student from Kindergarten through grade twelve.

The VIP Project (Vaccines for Influenza Prevention) will be asking for both financial and in-kind contributions for this effort, from a partnership of sources, including; Campbell County Health Foundation, Campbell County Memorial Hospital, Campbell County Government, and Campbell County School District and private donors.

Because of medical privacy restrictions, the Community Health Partnership has been reluctant to allow Rotary members to be on site where the vaccinations are given. So, this year we plan to contact the schools, 13 elementary, 3 junior high and 4 high school, to volunteer to be available to help the counselors and nurses with paperwork, getting students lined up for the shots and generally help where needed. This is such a large partnership and group of donors, that it would be impossible to have someone from every agency on site, but we continue to try to be involved and on-hand.

You need to add a detailed budget to the documents area. Also you need to be more specific in the description as to what your club members involvement with the project will be.

The VIP project is just on hold for approval. The entire project is being organized by the school district at this point. Once we are approved, Campbell County Community Health will send us an invoice and tell us how our members will be able to help, based on medical restrictions. Thanks.
