Meningitis Updates

Santa Clara Public Health Department Update

Here is the February 5th, 11:00AM update from the Santa Clara County Public Health Department.

The Santa Clara County Public Health Department was pleased and extremely impressed with the turnout at yesterday’s vaccination clinic at Santa Clara University. Yesterday, approximately 1,500 vaccinations were given by 12 vaccinators (nurses, pharmacists, and other licensed health professionals). In order to accommodate the large turnout, the clinic was kept open for nearly two hours past the 8:00 p.m. closing time. To ensure that all students at the University are able to get vaccinated, we are doubling the number of vaccinators staffing today’s clinic. The clinic is being held, on campus, from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.

We, at SCCPHD, especially want to thank Santa Clara University for their great partnership on this effort.

Our next update will be on Monday, February 9th. Information is available online at:
