Beginning Monday, more students will receive the H1N1 vaccine in school.

Franklin County Schools will conduct vaccine clinics at all 11 schools in the district this week.

Parents have the choice between either the shot or the nasal mist form of the vaccine.

Consent forms were sent out and only children who have had one signed will get the vaccine.

Over the weekend in Lexington, people stood in line for hours to receive the shot.

Vaccinations in Franklin County are scheduled to last all week.

Last week in Madison County, schools postponed vaccinations for middle and high schoolers because of a vaccine shortage.
