Students to test out flu shot program

? Students at New York City schools are playing a part in a weeklong flu vaccination program this week.

According to officials, two schools in Brooklyn will be recipients of a large distribution of the seasonal flu shot.

St. Mark?s School and George Washington Carver School will receive the shots as a way for health department officials to determine the best strategy to immunize a large number of students.

Officials say this test is in preparation for the H1N1 distribution that will be starting in November.
