July 2, 2013:
Tomorrow volunteers of the Community Immunization Campaign will staff a booth at the Summer by George celebration on the shores of Lake George in St Cloud from 5:00 PM to 9:00PM. We will be doing blood pressures and talking up pertussis immunizations to visitors from among the large crowd expected on the eve of July 4th. We have our banner and new T-shirts ready to go. We have reprinted more info cards to distribute. We will not be able to give shots tomorrow, but expect to be ready for our next Summer by George on Wednesday, July 24.
We will convene the first official Circle of Health council on Monday, July 8, 2013 in the Mississippi Room at the St Cloud Public Library. We will show the Campaign video and talk about what we have done so far and our plans for the upcoming months. We will seek input from participants on the best format for future Circle of Health meetings and possible issues to consider for future campaigns. We will also do some brainstorming on defining our goals for the Circle of Health community health council. Thanks to our volunteers for staffing our presentations this Summer. Pat Hart has started planning for our community immunization night in the Fall.
