The Saint Vincent School Board, Health & Safety Committee will host our sixth annual influenza vaccine clinic for students and their families. The clinic is scheduled to be held Friday, October 7 from noon until 3:00 pm in the Holy Family Hall. This year’s flu vaccine will protect against those influenza strains expected to circulate during the year. Please note, this year CNS WILL NOT be administering the Flu Mist vaccine.

Community Nursing Services (CNS) will be administering this year’s influenza vaccine. CNS offers direct insurance billing. Cash payment for the influenza vaccines is $35 for the quadrivalent flu shot.

To receive the influenza vaccine, children must be accompanied by their parent or guardian who will be required to complete and sign the CNS Consent Form. Please bring your insurance card and photo ID or cash, check or credit card payment for the vaccine. CNS is able to directly bill the following insurance companies: Aetna, Altius, Ameriben, Blue Cross, Direct Care Administrators, DMBA, Educators Mutual, GEHA, Meritain, PEHP, SelectHealth, UMR, United Health Care, University of Utah, CHIP, Medicaid for Children, Medicare Part B, and some Medicare Advantage plans. CNS is Utah’s leader in onsite flu clinics. They are licensed and certified by the State of Utah and accredited by the National League for Nursing.

“The Flu” is an infection of the nose, throat, and lungs caused by influenza viruses. There are many different influenza viruses that are constantly changing. Each year in the U.S. they cause illness, hospital stays and death. The most important thing you can do to prevent the flu is to immunize yourself and your children. The CDC recommends everyone, age six months and older, receive the influenza vaccine. It is especially important that young children be vaccinated.
For additional information, you also may visit the CDC’s influenza website at www.cdc.gov/flu or www.cdc.gov/flu/parents. Your child’s health care provider can both answer your questions about the influenza virus and give your child the seasonal influenza vaccine.

If you and your family are interested in receiving the influenza vaccine through the Saint Vincent Flu Immunization Clinic, please email your information to kelleybeaudry@gmail.com. Your information should include Family name, # of flu immunizations your family is requesting. Example: Beaudry family, 4 immunizations. Please respond by SEPTEMBER 28 so we are able to notify CNS of the type and number of vaccines that will be required to fulfill our needs.
