CALLING ALL FPS STUDENTS.............GET A FLU SHOT AT SCHOOL!!!!!
Fulton Public Schools is working in conjunction with the Callaway County Health Department to provide flu shot "clinics" at school.
Who will give the shots?
The FPS Director of Health Services and another nurse from FPS will give the shots in each school.
When will the shots be given?
The date will be scheduled sometime around the beginning of November.
Who is eligible?
All students are eligible for shots--insured, uninsured, and those on Medicaid.
Do students need money the day they get their shot?
Kids won't be charged, but it will process through insurance if they have it. This means if families have private insurance, the insurance will pay for it and then the family will receive an EOB from insurance.
Oops! I forgot my permission form. Can I still get the shot?
Students CANNOT get a shot without the permission form which is due back Wednesday, October 21st.
More information and the permission form can be found at
