The Newton South flu clinic is Friday, November 8. Each student to be vaccinated must have a parent/guardian complete two forms: a consent/screening form and a vaccine administration record/insurance form. Forms are also available in the school nurse’s office. For forms in Chinese, Hebrew, Japanese, Korean, Portuguese, Russian and Spanish, click here. Forms are due to the School Nurse on Wednesday, November 6.
Parents may choose the flu shot or the nasal spray flu vaccine for their child and must indicate which type of vaccine they wish their child to receive by checking it on the form. Vaccine Information Statements about each type of vaccine are available for review at www.newtonma.gov/flu or in the school nurse’s office. There is no cost to receive the vaccine, but insurance information is requested.
