Flu Shots Available for Calais Middle/High School Students

The Blue Devil Health Center will offer flu shots to students free of charge beginning September 25th and continuing all fall as supplies last.  Permission slips will be distributed to students from their home room teachers and should be returned as soon as possible to the school’s front office or school nurse.  Parents may obtain additional permission forms by calling 454-8262.

Maine CDC recommends a yearly flu vaccination as the first and most important step in protecting against this serious disease.  Information about the flu and the vaccine is available on the Maine CDC website at www.Maineflu.gov.   In addition, everyday preventive steps like frequent hand washing can decrease your child’s chances of getting the flu.
