RE: Flu Vaccination Clinic
Health Heroes will begin flu vaccination clinics THIS FRIDAY October 9 and Monday October 12. Consent forms need turned in to your building clinics by tomorrow, October 7 so a final count can be provided to Health Heroes. Generals Academy students are welcome to participate at any site. Please contact your home building so your child can be included in our final count.
Health Heroes will be visiting each building on both days to reach any staff or students that have completed and turned in consent forms. They will be visiting the buildings in the following order:
Wooster High School
Edgewood Middle School
Littlest Generals Preschool AM Class
Wooster Grace Church - Alternative Learning Center
Littlest Generals Preschool PM Class
Wooster United Methodist Church - Alternative Learning Center
No set times will be released. Times for each building and time spent at each building will be dependent upon how many consent forms are received. Health Heroes will plan to set up at 7:45 a.m. both mornings and will begin the flu vaccine clinic shortly after.
Students 18 years and under that have a signed consent form will be vaccinated whether they have insurance or not. If they do not have insurance, they qualify for free doses. No student will be turned away. Staff need to provide their insurance information on the consent form. There is no out-of-pocket expense to either students or staff. The convenience to having the flu clinic based on-site in our school buildings benefits staff and students as they do not have to leave work or school, pay a co-pay or even have a balance after insurance is billed. Again, there is no expense to students or staff.
A link for the consent form is below. Th consent form is the same form for both students and staff. Staff will fill in their information under the student section. If you should have questions on whether or not to receive the vaccine, there is a phone number to call and speak with the professionals at Health Heroes, Inc.
