Skip Flu Clinic Oct 5th, 2022
Preventing the flu… Starring You!
Public Health Solutions does not want you to get sick with the flu. When more people get the flu vaccine, many fewer people will become sick with the flu and thus there will be fewer people spreading influenza to others. This is especially important if you are around infants 6 months or younger or the elderly as they are at a greater risk to have serious complications due to flu. Most healthy school-aged children may not experience flu complications but could risk exposing an elderly grandparent or baby brother/sister to the virus.
Public Health Solutions District Health Department will again be offering flu immunization clinics for students at your school. Prior to the start of clinics, students will bring home consent forms and fact sheets explaining the importance of getting the flu immunization. Parents and guardians are encouraged to read the information carefully, complete and sign the consent form, and send it back to school with their students.
****Due to Covid-19 Vaccine updates, we will be providing Pfizer boosters to children ages 5-11 and primary Pfizer doses to children 12 and older. Your child’s Covid-19 vaccine card will need to be present on the day of the SKIP Flu clinic and we will verify all prior Covid-19 vaccinations. If this is a first primary dose, we will administer the Pfizer Covid-19 vaccine accordingly. This information is not stated in the original packet and we thank you for your understanding.
Show the Flu Bug who is the winner! Not only will students have received protection against the flu by getting a flu shot, they will also be entered into a drawing. All students who return a completed permission form AND get the flu shot the day of the school clinic will be entered into a drawing for a $20.00 gift card. Do not let the flu bug win!
Public Health Solutions District Health Department will be at your school on __October 5, 2022___________________.
