Free Flu Vaccinations Available to Smyth County Students in October

Influenza is a very contagious respiratory illness caused by influenza viruses. The best way to prevent the flu is by getting a flu vaccination each year. Smyth County Schools and the Mount Rogers Health District will offer free flu shots to Smyth County students during October. Medicaid or insurance may be billed but parents will not be charged or billed for the shots. The federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices recommends that the Flumist® nasal spray not be used for the 2017-2018 season. In order to best protect your child, only the flu shot will be available.

In order for your child to receive the flu vaccine, you must complete and sign this parental consent form and return it to your child's school. ORMULARIO DE CONSENTIMIENTO PARA LA VACUNA ANTIGRIPAL PARA ESTUDIANTES DE 2017-18 SOLAMENTE ANTIGRIPAL INACTIVADA (IIV).
