Don’t Let the Flu Bug Sneak Up on You!
Public Health Solutions doesn’t want to have the Flu Bug Sneak Up on You. When more people get the flu vaccine, many less people will become sick with the flu and thus there will be less 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 student.
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. Don’t let the flu bug win!
Public Health Solutions District Health Department will be at Wilber Clatonia Schools on October 11, 2019.
For more information, contact your school health office, or Public Health Solutions at 402-826-3880.
