FLU SHOT CLINIC
Tuesday November 17
The Boone County Health Department staff will be at Jefferson Middle School to give free flu shots to our students!
If you completed the flu shot form during electronic registration, the nurse will have the form ready. If you have not completed the consent form, please contact the health room. We will email a copy of the consent form to you. You may complete the form and return via email or fax, or your student can bring it with them to the flu shot clinic. The form must be filled out correctly and signed by an adult. Students will enter the building from Hickman Avenue through the media center door. Parents can park and wait for their student outside. This will limit the crowding inside the building so we can provide social distancing. There will be people directing traffic on the day of the clinic.
Please contact the health room with any questions!
PLEASE notify the school if your contact information changes. When your child is sick or injured, it is very stressful for them if we can't contact a parent or guardian to take them home. A phone call to the guidance office or our attendance secretary is all you need to do to update a phone number.
A Headache can really Hurt!!Remember that your middle school student can carry a one day supply of an over the counter pain reliever in a container labeled by the manufacturer.
