Genesis will be offering FREE seasonal flu vaccines at your BCSD elementary schools this fall. The Genesis Flu-Free Quad Cities program is sponsored by: Genesis Health Services Foundation, Clinton County VNA Foundation and gifts from individual and corporate private donors in our communities. Vaccination is one of the best ways to protect your child against the flu. Our goal is to keep your children and those they come in contact with, healthy this flu season!
Vaccines will be administered at Thomas Jefferson on October 11.
The Vaccine Information Statement (VIS) may be on your school district website or you may view the VIS on the following site: www.cdc.gov/vaccines/ or www.immunize.org. Please take time to read this information. It should answer any questions you may have about the flu vaccine.
This program does not include a second clinic at your child's school for those children that may require a second vaccine. The information sheet that your child will bring home after their vaccine will help you determine whether your child will need a second vaccine. Your local health department or primary care physician will be able to assist you as well.
