The Webster County Health Unit is working with Strafford Schools to give the seasonal influenza vaccine to children at school age kindergarten-12th grade. This vaccine will protect against all four strains that are expected to circulate this year. The vaccinations will only be available in the form of injections. NO NASAL MIST WILL BE AVAILABLE THIS SEASON.
We will hold a vaccination clinic at Strafford Schools on Tuesday, November 13, 2018. There will be no cost to you for this vaccine.
If you’d like for your child to receive the flu vaccine at school, please register them online at: www.SchoolCares.com . Use Access Code: MO26208. Choose your childs school to begin registration. The deadline for online registration is November 6, 2018.
If you are unable to register online, you must fill out both sides and sign the registration form found below. You may get a registration form from the school nurse also. Return the completed form to your school nurse by November 6, 2018. If you do not return the form prior to this date, your child will not receive a vaccination that day.
If you have any questions about the vaccine please call the Webster County Health Unit; or if you have questions related to the vaccination clinics, please refer those to your child’s school nurse. Please visit the CDC’s web site at http://www.cdc.gov for more information especially for parents.
