Flu Vaccine Information

Dear Parents/Guardians,

 

Flu Vaccination Clinics will be in the schools in the months of September and October. Now more than ever, it is important for your child to receive the flu vaccination due to the current situation with COVID-19. The vaccination will be offered for all students in Saraland City School System. There are two different clinic time frames see below:

 

First Dates: The week of September 27th – September 30th for school system employees that have Peehip BCBS and their spouses/school-aged children. If you are a parent/guardian and work for the public school systems outside of Saraland and have the Peehip BCBS insurance, call the school nurse for a permission form to sign your child up for the clinic. The school nurse can send home the permission form with your child or email you the permission form.

 

Second Date: October 6th for all students that have other types of insurance or no insurance. The permission form and information sheet for this clinic are attached. Please complete this form and return as soon as possible to the school nurse. If you do not have insurance, your child is eligible to receive the vaccination free of charge.

 

Please take advantage of the flu clinics in the schools to protect your child from contracting the flu this season. If you have any questions, please call me at 251-586-1495.

 

 

Thank you,
