VNA Home Health Hospice will be hosting flu vaccine clinics for both staff and students. The forms are included in the links below as well as available through the school nurses at each school.
All clinics will have an injectable vaccine. In addition, FluMist (nasal spray) may be available at some clinics (it cannot guarantee it for all clinics). Unless there is a contraindication to one type of vaccine, the nurse at the clinic will determine which type of vaccine to use for your child.
For information about flu and the vaccine go to www.maineflu.gov, https://www.maine.gov/doe/vaccine/toolkit/sections/2.2%20SLVC%202014-2015FactSheet.pdf
