How to get your child vaccinated for the flu in school

This year, in partnership with the Arkansas Department of Health (ADH), LRSD is holding Flu Immunization clinics in schools to provide flu vaccine for students and staff. Click here for the Flu Clinic schedule (Pago 2 en Español). Click here for Vaccine Information Statements for both vaccine types and consent forms (ADH & school district) in English. Click here for Spanish version.

It is very important that you follow through with the steps required so that your child can be protected from the flu.

For your child to receive the flu vaccine, you must: 

 

1. Read the Vaccine Information Statement for the vaccine. Forms will be posted soon

2. Read and complete the front and back of the ADH consent form.

3. PRINT clearly all information required on ADH consent form.

4. Make sure you have signed the ADH consent form for the flu vaccine.

5. Sign the school district consent form.

6. Return both consent forms to your child’s school as quickly as possible.

 

This is a great opportunity for children to receive this vaccine with no charge to you. If you have insurance, ADH will ask your insurance company to pay for the cost of giving the vaccine. If you do not have insurance or your insurance does not pay for vaccines, there will still be no charge to you.

 

REMEMBER, only those students with the required completed paperwork (the signed ADH consent AND the school district consent) will be allowed to receive the flu vaccine.

Keeping Your Child from Getting Sick

 

 

Although district health administrators have not seen any cases of Enterovirus D68 at LRSD schools, we wanted to make sure parents were aware of any symptoms for which they need to be alert.  We are sharing tips from the Arkansas Department of Health and the Centers for Disease Control.
