Seattle Public Schools has partnered with the Seattle Visiting Nurse Association to provide flu shot clinics for all students, staff, and their families at no charge with proof of current medical insurance.
Ballard High School will host a clinic this afternoon (Tuesday, September 30) from 2 p.m. – 6 p.m.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the single best protection from influenza is to receive a flu shot each year. The CDC recommends everyone 6 months old and over be vaccinated against the flu.
Today’s clinic will be open to all Seattle Public Schools children (4 years of age and older) and their families. Please note that students under the age of 18 will need a Patient Consent Form signed by a parent or guardian. Click here to download the form.
All participants will be asked to provide their health insurance information (card) to receive an immunization. SVNA will electronically bill the insurance plan for your flu shot. They bill all insurance plans including Apple Health (Washington State Medicaid) plans. Flu shots are considered preventive care and are not subject to deductibles or co-pays which means no out-of-pocket expense for participants.
