Flu Vaccine Parent Letter

September 30, 2019
Dear Parent:
The Baldwin County Board of Education in cooperation with HNN Immunization Inc. will once again offer the influenza (FLU) vaccine in schools October 21-22, 2019. The vaccination will be made available to all students except for students who are dependents of parents insured by the Public Education Employee Health Insurance Program (PEEHIP). Employees’ children are given the opportunity to participate in the Alabama Department of Public Health Wellness School Clinics and are not eligible for this program.
The live attenuated influenza vaccine (LAIV), also known the nasal spray flu vaccine is not available for the 2109-2020 School Year. We will only offer the injectable vaccine.
Consent forms were sent to all parents directly from the schools. The consent form must be completed and signed by the parent or guardian. Incomplete forms will be rejected and returned to the parent. Students will not receive the vaccine without a complete and properly signed consent form. Please return the form to your child’s school nurse as soon as possible.
Linda W. Jones, RN
Health Services Supervisor
