Flu Shots Available

The Shoreline School District is committed to helping keep our students, parents and our community

healthy throughout the entire flu season. That’s why we have partnered with the Seattle Visiting Nurse

Association to provide “flu shot clinics” for our district.

Many people believe that seasonal influenza (“the flu”) is much like the common cold and that it cannot

be prevented. But, influenza is a serious and potentially dangerous disease. Each year students miss

approximately 38 million school days due to the flu and each year parents miss more that 10 million

According to the CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention), the single best way to protect

you and your family from influenza is to receive a “flu shot” each year. The CDC recommends that

EVERYONE, over six months of age, should be vaccinated against the flu.

Flu Shot Clinics will be held at the following central locations within the district:

• Shorecrest High School – Wednesday, October 15, 2014 from 3:00pm – 7:00pm

• Shorewood High School – Wednesday, October 22, 2014 from 3:00pm – 7:00pm

Clinics will be open to all Shoreline School District children (four years of age and older) and their

families. Please note that students under the age of 18 will need a Patient Consent Form signed by a

parent or guardian. Patient Consent Forms will be available at the clinic site or you can find them below

All participants will be asked to provide their health insurance information (card) to receive an

immunization. SVNA will electronically bill the insurance plan for your flu shot. They bill all insurance

plans including Apple Health (Washington State Medicaid) plans. Flu shots are considered preventative

care and are not subject to deductibles or co-pays. This means no out-of-pocket expense for

Please join us this year as we keep our schools, families and communities healthy and flu free this

season!
