Free On-Campus Flu Clinic
Thornton Academy will hold an influenza vaccination clinic on Friday, October 18th. We will be partnering with Northern Light Home Care and Hospice to provide this clinic to our students.
Please read the Vaccine Information Sheets and complete the Health Screen & Permission Form and return to the school by Tuesday, October 15th. Please fill out insurance information correctly. Although the vaccine is provided at no charge, there is a cost to administer the vaccine. All forms must be filled out completely. Children presenting with an incomplete form will not receive their vaccine. There will be no out of pocket cost.
- You will be notified if there is a change in the planned dates of school flu clinics.
All clinics will have injectable vaccine. In addition, FluMist (nasal spray) may be available at some clinics. We cannot guarantee it for all clinics. Unless you clearly mark which type of vaccine you prefer, and there no contraindication to either type of vaccine, the nurse at the clinic will determine which type of vaccine to use for your child.
