Fall 2021 Influenza Immunization Clinic For ASD Students
Influenza is a highly contagious respiratory virus that affects our communities each year. Flu season runs from October through May. This virus can live on hard surfaces and can be spread easily through coughing and sneezing. Symptoms of influenza include fever, cough, sore throat, runny nose, body aches, and tiredness. In certain circumstances flu can become life threatening.
To protect the children within our community, the Kewaunee County Health Department will hold an influenza immunization clinic at Algoma schools on Tuesday, October 26, 2021 beginning at 1PM at Algoma High/Middle School and then moving to the Algoma Elementary School. Injectable vaccine will be available free of charge while supplies last.
If you have a student in the district and you want your child to receive the vaccine at school, please:
- Read the Vaccine Information Statement (VIS) carefully. The VIS explains why people should get this vaccine, who should delay getting it and who should not get it at all.
- Sign and return the consent form to your child’s school by the morning of Tuesday, October 26, 2021.
If you have any questions about this school immunization clinic, please call the health department at 920-388-7160.
