School System Offers Students Flu Vaccinations
- November 6, 2008
Superintendent Charlotte Placide offers student Darren Lockett support as he received his flu vaccination at South Boulevard School. The East Baton Rouge Parish School System (EBRPSS) and its health partner, Health Care Centers in Schools, have initiated the System’s first-ever influenza vaccinations program for all its school-age children. The flu immunizations are being provided to all EBRPSS students who have a completed consent form signed by a parent or guardian. According to the schedule, the immunizations will be administered to students at various System schools from November 5 through December 12. Information packets and consent forms are sent to students’ parents or guardians prior to the immunizations. An optional form is available for children who already have received the immunization. Health Care Center medical staff and volunteers from Southeastern Louisiana University’s School of Nursing will administer the immunization, and a medical staffer will remain on site during the entire school day.
