The live attenuated influenza vaccine (LAIV), also known as the nasal spray, is not available for the 2019-2020 School Year. We will only offer the injectable vaccine.
Consent forms were sent to all parents directly from the school. The consent form must be completed and signed by the parents. Please return the form to your child’s school nurse. Students will not receive the vaccine without a properly signed consent form.
The Baldwin County Public School System is committed to the provision of excellent educational opportunities for all students. For students to take advantage of these opportunities, it is essential that students attend school on a regular basis. Daily attendance is monitored by each school so that both parents and educators can work together to ensure compliance with the district’s attendance policy.
