Carson City Health and Human Services and the Carson City School District will offer qualifying children free COVID-19 and flu vaccinations from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. Oct. 9 at Carson High School.
Additionally, annual seasonal flu immunizations will be offered at school sites throughout October.
CCHHS licensed nurses will be at each school to administer the flu vaccine.
The vaccine will only be available as injectable (commonly known as “a shot”) for all age groups for the 2021-22 flu season. Based on recommendations from the Centers of Disease Control and Prevention’s Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices, the nasal mist vaccine will not be available. The shot will protect against four flu viruses.
In order for children to receive a flu shot, make sure to:
• Complete and sign the consent form available on the district’s website.
• Send the completed consent form back to the child’s school/teacher at least one day prior to the clinic.
• Read the Influenza Vaccine Information Statement. It will be given to your child on the day of vaccination or can be obtained from the CCHHS website, where you can also access more information at www.gethealthycarsoncity.org/immunizations.
