A message from the Indiana State Health Commissioner:
The production of the 2009 H1N1 flu vaccine has reached a peak and we now have plenty of vaccine available for Indiana. Employers can play a vital role in preventing the spread of the H1N1 flu by encouraging employees to get vaccinated and to practice the three C’s:
- Clean your hands
- Cover your cough/sneeze
- Contain germs by staying home when sick
And, if you are a larger employer with the capacity to give out the vaccine to your employees, the Indiana State Department of Health can have the H1N1 flu vaccine shipped directly to you. The vaccine and supplies are free.
Just complete the provider agreement and fax it to the Indiana State Department of Health at (317) 233-8827. Once we receive your provider agreement, we can send you an order form and have the vaccine directly shipped to you. The minimum order is 100 doses. We do require that vaccinations are documented into the Children and Hoosiers Immunization Registry Program (CHIRP), our Internet-based, statewide vaccine registry.
If you have questions, please contact Angie Cierzniewski at (317) 234-3072.
