Flu Vaccination Clinic at Brown – November 5

The Brown Middle School Flu Vaccination Clinic will be held on Tuesday, November 5. Each student to be vaccinated must have a parent/guardian complete two forms:

1. Consent/Screening form

2. Vaccine Administration Record/Insurance form

Forms are available in the school nurse’s office, or may be downloaded at www.newtonma.gov/flu. You may electronically complete the form, print, sign and return. Forms are due to the School Nurse by November 1.

Only the flu shot (no nasal spray) will be offered at school this year. The Vaccine Information Statement about the flu shot, and additional information for families including tips on preparing kids for a shot is available here or in the school nurse’s office. There is no cost to receive the vaccine, but insurance information is requested. All students, regardless of insurance status, are invited to receive vaccine with parent permission.
