- The current H1N1 Influenza Pandemic is especially virulent in among pregnant women and girls, with six times the mortality rate of other populations.
- One percent of the overall population is pregnant at any one time.
- The general student population of all ages and genders are vectors for the virus, exposing pregnant students and staff to infection.
RESOLVED: Los Angeles Tenth District PTSA strongly advocates that all pregnant students in LAUSD and all pregnant staff in the school district – and all pregnant parents – receive the H1N1 influenza vaccine as soon as possible – and that the LAUSD Student Health and Human Services Department and District Nursing advocate and educate the community and make every effort – in collaboration with the Los Angeles County Office of Education and the County Health Department – to facilitate this effort.
BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED this message be shared with the Superintendent, The Board of Education, Thirty-first District PTSA and our units and councils.
