    Flu Vaccine Clinics 2019

    This year we are rolling out our biggest effort to prevent illness. School nurses have partnered with the Visiting Nurse Association to come to all of our schools this fall to vaccinate both students and staff. Students under 19 years old and who have no insurance can still get the vaccination through the Vaccine For Children program.

    School-based health centers located in 29 of our schools also offer flu shots to those students who are enrolled. Three 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. If child has no insurance, write “No Insurance” on consent form.

    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 page.
