Flu Vaccines for Marshwood Students

Flu Vaccines for Marshwood Students

MSAD35 Schools will be offering flu vaccines to students on October 11, October 12 and at one later date at MGWS to be announced.   We will be partnering with VNA Home Health Hospice of South Portland to provide our students these clinics.

October 11  MMS 10:30-12:30

        CES 2:30-3:30 All students from MGWS are invited to this clinic.

October 12   MHS 10:30-12:30

         EES 2:30 – 3:30

Please review the attached Vaccine Information Sheets and complete the Health Screen & Permission Form. This should be returned to your student’s school no later than October 9 . Please fill out insurance information correctly and completely (even if you are not insured). There will be no out of pocket cost. Children presenting with an incomplete form will not receive their vaccine.

 

All clinics will have injectable vaccine. In addition, FluMist (nasal spray) may be available at some clinics.  We cannot guarantee it for all clinics. Unless there is a contraindication to one type of vaccine, the nurse at the clinic will determine which type of vaccine to use for your child.

For information about flu and the vaccine go to maineflu.gov. For questions about the flu vaccine, call Maine Center for Disease Control & Prevention (Maine CDC) at 1-800-867-4775, Monday – Friday 9 a.m. – 5 p.m.

 

For questions about the vaccine clinics please contact the school nurse at your schools.
