Porchlight VNA's LES Flu Clinic

September 26, 2017



Dear Parents,

Porchlight VNA is once again offering flu shots to Kindergarten through Grade 6 in the Lee school system.  Clinics will be held on Friday, October 20, 8:30 AM to 12 PM.

If you are interested in having your child immunized against influenza, please read the enclosed vaccine information sheet and fill out both sides of the consent form. 
This consent form not only gives us permission to vaccinate your child but to also share the information we have obtained with their pediatrician and to report to the State of Massachusetts.  The back side of the form has important information that we are required to report to the state regarding your child’s health insurance.  Please read the form carefully and fill out/sign at all highlighted areas/red arrows.  If you do not fill the form out fully we will not be able to vaccinate your child.  Please return your form to the office by Friday, October 13.

Due to recommendations made by the Massachusetts Department of Public Health we will NOT be able to offer the flu mist during the 2017-2018 flu season.  This decision was made in light of concerns about poor vaccine effectiveness against influenza A (H1N1) in the U.S. during recent seasons.  If you would like further information regarding this decision please go to www.mass.gov.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact your school nurse.

Sincerely,
Shannon Smith
Billing Supervisor
