From the School Nurse - October 2015

Do I have a great deal for you!!! Your student and your family (age 11 and up) can get a Flu Shot at Concordia Lutheran High School for FREE! We offer you the convenience of not having to fit one more thing into your and your student’s schedule.

As you read and hear everywhere, Flu is a contagious respiratory illness caused by a virus. The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) recommends that everyone over the age of 6 months get a flu shot. Everyone is at risk, but you are especially vulnerable if you have a chronic disease such as diabetes, heart disease or asthma. If you have infants or elderly folks in your home or spend time with them, you could be spreading a life threatening illness to them.

When you get a Flu shot, you protect yourself, any newborns or infants who are too young to get vaccinated, and people at high risk for complications from the flu.

We are offering Flu shots at CLHS on:

Friday, October 30, 2015
During lunch periods (no lost class time) for students
Parents may come for their flu shot between 7 am until 1 pm
Cost is FREE!
Flu shots will be given in the Auditorium Lobby
(You may park near the Auditorium and use the Auditorium doors for easy in and out)
Please email [email protected] to reserve your FREE Flu Shot by 10/27/15

Please continue to Wash Those Hands, get plenty of rest, increase those fruits and veggies, get some exercise, and drink a lot of water. Doing all of this will boost your immune system and help us all to have an uneventful flu season. If you do become ill – stay home and let your body rest as well as to not expose the rest of us.
