Forms for authorizing the FluMist to be administered to your student were sent home 10/27/14. If you wish for your child to receive the FREE FluMist vaccination, please return parent/guardian consent form, NO LATER THAN, Wednesday, November 5, 2014. Returned forms must be reviewed by Health Room before FluMist will administered to your child by the Howard County Health Department Staff. Forms returned after that date will not be accepted and your child will NOT be able to receive the FluMist at Patapsco Middle School.
We know that many children have already received either the flu shot or the nasal spray from their pediatrician, clinic, or pharmacy. We will accept documentation of this vaccination, but it is not required.
Thank you for protecting your child and continue to abide by the HCPSS guidelines in keeping your child at home when they are sick. Remember: your child must be fever-free for 24 hours before returning to school after an illness.
And remember – Encourage proper hand washing.
