HALIFAX - Some high school students in Nova Scotia will be able to get an H1N1 shot on campus starting next week.
On Monday, students in Grades 10 to 12 at Sackville High will be eligible for the vaccine during school hours, with no permission slip required.
It's part of a pilot program by the Capital Health District Authority, which hopes to hold immunization clinics at some 17 high schools mostly within the Halifax Regional School Board.
Linda Young, director of public health for the authority, told CTV News they are targeting young people aged 15 to 18 because they haven't been showing up at vaccinations clinics.
The authority plans to hold one-day clinics in every high school in the district in the coming weeks.
Dalhousie University in Halifax also says three clinics will be held next week on campus for staff, faculty and students of both Dalhousie and the University of King's College.
