I am not in a school presently, but I had the flu BAD during the first wave, and milder during the current one.

I do not know what our stats are, but I am missing roughly 15-20% of my students on any given day. Some classes have had 50% of their students absent. It doesn't seem to be just H1N1. I'm not sure if parents are being more willing to keep sick kids home, or if there are more illnesses running around. We have had about 10% of our teachers out as well.

The health department plans to run a vaccine clinic, but we do not yet have any definite date. I fear that by the time the flu clinic arrives that it will be too late.

Our county health departments have had the vaccine in very limited quantities. Unfortunately there hasn't been any real rhyme or reason to who gets the vaccine...actually it has kind of been a who-do-you-know situation - small town issue I guess. Our pediatrician has not had any yet and has no idea when they will get a shipment.

Last week we averaged 200-250 absent out of the 700 in our middle school.


And it isn't over yet.

We haven't had any confirmed cases in our building as most people aren't sick enough to be admitted to the hospital and tested. One of our teachers suspects he had it but it was too late to test him. We had one day where 47 out of 265 students were absent. Most of them have had the garden variety upper respiratory infections and colds. I'd rather they stay home even with that sort of illness than to spread it to others.

Our county health department now has the vaccine and the priority is for people who work in health care, people who work with small children and pregnant women and those at greatest risk for infection. I don't know if we'll get our kids vaccinated or not. It isn't something we've had the opportunity to discuss.
