Nassau County Executive Tom Suozzi, joined by county, village, school and health officials, announced the county has purchased refrigerators to store H1N1 vaccines, expected to be released by the Center for Disease Control (CDC) in October.
The county expects to receive enough vaccines for residents who fall into the “high-risk” category: pregnant women, children between the ages of six months and 24 years, individuals between the ages of 25 and 64 years with underlying health conditions, household contacts and caregivers of infants under the age of six months, health care workers and emergency medical personnel. Suozzi reminded residents to take the necessary precautions to remain healthy as schools open and the flu season kicks in.
Nassau County Legislator Judy Jacobs recently reminded those grandparents who are raising their grandchildren that there is a non-parent caregiver grant available through the state of New York. According to Jacobs, many people who qualify for the grant do not apply for it.
“This is a little known resource to help ease the financial burden that grandparents often experience while raising their grandchildren,” Jacobs said. “And less than 10 percent of the people that are eligible for the grants have applied. I encourage grandparents to contact the National Committee of Grandparents for Children’s Rights now. Money should not be an obstacle when raising grandchildren.”
That was only one of the messages that Nassau County Assessor Ted Jankowski, appointed by County Executive Suozzi in January of this year, wished to convey at a recent visit to Anton Community Newspapers.
