NYHQ Vaccinates 600

On Wednesday, October 28, NYHQ held a free community vaccination drive at the Gujarati Samaj Community Center, which is located in Fresh Meadows.  During the drive, five students from St. Francis Prep High School were on hand to assist. The school is where H1N1 first broke out in Queens last year.

It was late April when St. Francis Prep students were the first to be identified as having the flu by the NYC Department of Health and it thrust the school and the Principal, Bro. Leonard Conway, into the national (and even international) media spotlight for several weeks.

As classes resume all across the United States, so too has the discussion (and concern) about the potential revival of the N1H1 virus, or “Swine Flu."   With this in mind, Bro. Leonard and other members of St. Francis Prep's administrative team have been sought out by the media this week. Below are the links to some recent stories:
