Things to know before:

  • For Pine Island, we will only be vaccinating those students who attend Pine Island Elementary. For middle and high school students, please check with your school about vaccination opportunities at school through Goodhue Public Health.
  • The primary care clinic that you select on your signup form (Mayo Clinic or Olmsted Medical Center) will administer and bill for your child’s vaccine. If you select the incorrect clinic, you may receive a bill, due to out-of-network charges. Mayo Clinic and Olmsted Medical Center are not responsible for these changes.
  • If you sign up online, you will get an email reminder for your children’s school flu vaccination two days prior to their scheduled flu vaccination dates.
  • You will receive a confirmation by email for each child, immediately after signing up your children online. If you do not receive a confirmation email, please contact our program.
  • For parents who cannot access the online form, paper signup forms are available at the schools in both English and Spanish.
  • We offer reminder texts for middle/high school students for a limited number of carriers (Alltel, AT&T, Boost Mobile, Cricket, Sprint, T-Mobile, US Cellular, Verizon, and Virgin Mobile). Due to network restrictions, some texts may not be received. These students must be registered online to take part.
  • Please remind your children the day we come to the schools that they are signed up. Have your children wear tops that let us get to the upper arm if you are choosing the shot.

Things to know day of:

  • Both the injectable and nasal spray (FluMist) will be available this year. We have learned there will be a shortage of the nasal spray flu vaccine. This means that it may not be available at your child’s school. In the event that the nasal spray is not available, if you choose your vaccine choice as “nasal spray only”, and we do not have it that day, your child will not be vaccinated at school.
  • We will offer non-medicated coolant spray and use distractions to ease the pain of a shot.
  • Our nurses may provide comfort holds to keep your child safe (just as they do at your clinic).
  • We cannot vaccinate parents, teachers, or preschool children.
  • There are no make-up days, and you may not take your child to a different school to get the vaccine.

Your child will NOT get the flu vaccine at school:

  • If you do not sign up online or turn in the paper form by September 11 at 11:00 pm.
  • If you do not answer all of the questions or if your answers contain incorrect information.
  • If your child is not at school that day or is at school but is sick with a fever.
  • If your middle or high school child does not come when called.
  • If your child does not cooperate.
