Flu Vaccines Available
Each year, the flu leads to approximately 36,000 deaths and 200,000 hospitalizations nationwide. The best way to prevent the flu is to be vaccinated. We urge you to get your child a flu shot!
We are pleased to announce that Sanford Rock Rapids Clinic will again offer flu vaccines to all children enrolled in grades K-12 in your school district. The in-school flu clinic will be held Wednesday, October 20, 2017.
We will bill your insurance for the flu vaccine if you have coverage. If you do not have insurance coverage, please indicate so on the attached consent form.
This year, the live influenza vaccine (FluMist) will NOT be offered in the United States. We will be offering only the injectable form of vaccine to our patients. To receive the flu shot for your child, the attached consent form must be completed and returned to the school prior to October 10, 2017.
For more information about this in school flu clinic, visit your school’s website or call the Sanford Rock Rapids Clinic at (712) 472-3716.
