    Flu Vaccine Clinics 2018

    This year we are rolling out our biggest effort to prevent illness. School nurses have partnered with the Visiting Nurse Association to come to approximately 50 schools in November and early December to vaccinate both students and staff. Students can get the vaccination regardless of insurance.

    School-based health centers located in 25 of our schools also offer free flu shots to those students who are enrolled in the health center. Two Visiting Nurse Association clinics at the JSCEE are provided for staff to receive the vaccination.

    Flu shots protect our most vulnerable students from getting ill and can help keep our students and staff healthy and in school. According to the CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention), the single best way to protect yourself and your family from influenza is to receive a flu shot each year. The CDC recommends everyone six months of age and older be vaccinated against the flu.

    Parents may still register their child for a flu vaccination by sending a completed consent form to school or by being present at school on the day of the clinic to sign the form in person.

    For more information including flu clinic dates and the consent form, visit the Student Health Services webpage. All school dates are included on the flu vaccine clinic dates calendar.
