Flu Shot Clinics Offered at Carson City Schools in October
Carson City, Nev. (Sept. 27, 2021) —Carson City Health and Human Services (CCHHS) is working with the Carson City School District to offer qualifying children COVID-19 and flu vaccinations free of charge next Saturday, Oct. 9, from 8:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. at Carson High School. Additionally, annual seasonal flu immunizations will be offered at school sites throughout October. See dates, times and locations listed below.
There will be a team of CCHHS licensed nurses at each school to administer the flu vaccine. The vaccination is safe and a health action that benefits all age groups to protect against influenza illness.
The vaccine will only be available as injectable (commonly known as “a shot”) for all age groups for the 2021-2022 flu season. Based on recommendations from the Centers of Disease Control and Prevention’s Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices, the nasal mist vaccine will not be available. The shot will protect against four (4) flu viruses.
In order for children to receive a flu shot, please:
- COMPLETE and SIGN the consent form that is available on the district’s website here.
- SEND the completed consent form back to the child’s school/teacher no later than ONE DAY BEFORE THE SCHEDULED CLINIC.
- READ the Influenza Vaccine Information Statement. It will be given to your child on the day of vaccination or can be obtained from the CCHHS website, where you can also access more information: GetHealthyCarsonCity.org/immunizations.
