The Anderson County Health Department and the Oak Ridge School System have partnered to provide seasonal influenza (flu) vaccinations for staff and students. If your child is uninsured, there is no cost to you for the flu vaccine. If your child is covered by insurance, including TennCare and private insurance, the Anderson County Health Department will file a claim with the insurance plan and receive reimbursement directly from the insurance plan. There is no out of pocket cost to you for the flu vaccines provided during this school flu vaccination clinic.
Anderson County Health Department nurses will vaccinate children and school staff using the injectable (shot). Clinics will be held on September 30th and October 21st from 3:30-5:30pm at ORHS Wildcat Arena. Please come to the back entrance of the arena.
If you would like for your child to receive flu vaccine, please fill out both sides of the attached consent form completely. Be sure to sign the form as this will be your permission for your student to receive the vaccine. You must fill out a separate consent form for each student you would like to receive the vaccine. If at a later date you change your mind and do not wish for your child to receive flu vaccine at, please notify the school prior to the clinic date! This service to the students and staff is being done to decrease the impact of seasonal flu in our communities and to decrease school absenteeism.
Pfizer COVID-19 vaccination will also be available during this clinic, if your student is age 12 and up . If you wish for your child to receive their first dose, please plan to attend the clinic on September 30th, then again on October 21st to receive their second. Please complete the attached Pfizer consent.
If you have any questions, please call the Anderson County Health Department at 865-425-8801. If you need a paper copy of this information, please contact your school nurse. Consent forms are due next Monday September 27th to your school nurse, or you can email them to firstname.lastname@example.org.
