This was a first reading for the regulation.  Mrs. Mitrione said they may only be able to charge the state fee for the first mobile license.  She said since there has never been one issued, there is no cost to calculate for the license fee.  She also stated that they went over the food service fees and with adjustments, they are all higher than originally proposed.

 

Plasma Center Smallpox Vaccination by National Institute of Health

Mrs. Mitrione said no health departments knew about the vaccinations.  She said the next time CDC and the State Health Department will notify epidemiologists.

 

Food Sampling Program

Mrs. Mitrione reported that the annual budget for next year is due at the end of the month and she needs to know if she should budget for the food sampling program.  It was agreed that she should budget for the program.

 

NURSE’S REPORT

Flu Vaccine Clinics

Ms. Messer reported that two flu shot clinics were held.  Over 500 doses of vaccine were administered and the remaining vaccine has been committed.  She said the last two scheduled clinics would not be held.


 

HEALTH ASSESSMENT PROGRAM

Mrs. Mitrione introduced Kay Parent from Wright State University who explained the health assessment program to the board.  The Board of Health will act as the advisory board.  Three focus groups of volunteers will meet at least once in January with someone from the advisory board.  The focus groups should come up with five subjects to be assessed.
