The vaccination program will begin at 8:30 a.m. Tuesday at Lowell Elementary School, located at 625 S. Seventh St. in San Jose, according to district officials.

About 200 of the 385 students at the school have returned their consent forms and will be the first ones in line to be vaccinated during the program.

Lowell Elementary School is the first in the district to hold an H1N1 vaccination program, according to district officials.

As more vaccines become available, parents will be notified at various schools through the district's outcall system, ParentLink, and all information will also be available on the district's Web site, www.sjusd.org.

District Superintendent Don Iglesias said in a statement that "Being able to provide the vaccine for our students will keep them healthy, attending school and optimize their learning experience."
