October Flu Clinics
TMS flu clinic schedule, October 29th, 8:30 AM to 12 noon in TMS nurse’s office. Tsehootsooi Medical Center Public Health Nurses will administer the vaccines to students with signed consent forms by parent/guardian only.
Blank consent forms could be given to students at the end of the school day on Monday, October 1st, with instructions to students to return the forms the next day or week with parent/guardian signature. The blank consent forms, 610 to be exact, furnish by the public health nurses are in the nurse’s office. We will have a final count of how many signed consent forms are returned by October 20th, one week before the scheduled flu clinic date, give the signed consent forms back to the TMC Public Health Nurses and they can order the vaccines to be given to students on October 29th, Monday.
Flu Clinic date/time you can put on TMS October calendar and send via school messenger system announcement to parent/guardian that the students will be taking the consent forms home for their signature and return the signed consent to the school if they wish to have their child or children receive the flu vaccine at school this prevents hours of waiting at the hospital just to get the flu vaccine. Getting the vaccine at school eliminates time away from their class work, the student comes to the nurse’s office to be vaccinated and returns to class afterwards.
