BE A FLU FIGHTER
Public Health Solutions would like to encourage everyone to help become a Flu Fighter. When more people get the flu shot, many less people will become sick with the flu and so there will be less people spreading influenza to others. This is especially important if you are around babies or the elderly. Most healthy school age children may not experience complications to flu, but could risk exposing an elderly grandparent or baby brother/sister to the virus. The elderly and infants under 6 months of age are at a greater risk to have serious complications.
We do plan on following the State's procedure of only having injectable vaccine. This means no flu mist will be available. Please be certain to talk to your child so they are aware that they will be getting the shot again this year.
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. As parents or guardians, you are encouraged to read the information carefully, complete and sign the consent form and send it back to school with your student.
One lucky student will be a double winner! Not only will they h ave received protection against the flu by getting a flu shot they will also be entered into a drawing. Public Health Solutions will enter all students who return a completed permission form AND get the flu shot the day of the school clinic into a drawing for a $25.00 gift card. One lucky name from each school district will be drawn at the end of the school clinic day.
Public Health Solutions District Health Department will be at your school on October 24, 2018.
For more information, contact your school health office, or Public Health Solutions at 402-826-3880.
The forms will be sent home in the October 5, 2018 Elementary folders. They are also available in all the school offices.
