SSD to Host Flu Shot Clinic

Dear Parent/Guardian,

In preparation for the 2012-2013 school year and the occurrence of influenza, the Arkansas Department of Health is currently working with school districts to schedule and plan for flu vaccine clinics in schools.

The flu shot clinic will be held October 11th in the Hobgood Auditorium.  If you want your child to receive an injection or nasal spray, please fill out and return the appropriate paperwork.  Only those with a signed consent will participate in this event.

To facilitate the paperwork involved in receiving a parent’s consent for the student to receive the vaccine, a Family Education Rights to Privacy Act consent form is attached to this letter.  Please sign and return ALL attached forms.  These consent forms must be returned to the school nurse by Monday, October 1, 2012.  If you have any questions, please call the Union County Health Department at 870-863-5101.
