Influenza, also known as the flu, is a serious illness that affects people of all ages.  One of the best ways to prevent the flu is through vaccinations.  We are pleased to again join with the Maryland Partnership for Prevention (MPP) to offer flu vaccinations at our school.

New this year, you may give permission for your child to be vaccinated using the attached form.

We urge you to protect your family from the flu. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends that everyone ages 6 months and older get a flu shot. Please visit www.cdc.gov/flu/index.htm for more information about the flu vaccine.

The clinic at our school will be held in October.  We will send a notice home the day your student has been vaccinated indicating receipt of flu vaccine.

 If you want your child to be vaccinated, please:

1.    Fill out every section of the attached Consent Form Write neatly and use ink. 

2.    Use your insurance card to fill out your insurance information accurately.  Your insurance company will be billed.  There is no co-pay or deductible.  You will NOT be charged by us or your insurance company.

3.    Read the Vaccine Information Statement (VIS) and talk to your health care provider or the school nurse about any questions you have.

4.    Return the consent form
