The program offers the painless FluMist nasal spray vaccination for students at no cost.

Students with health insurance will be covered with no co-payments or deductibles, while supplies last.

Students with Medicaid or no insurance coverage will also be provided the vaccination at no cost, while supplies last.

Parental consent forms must be returned completed in full in order for the child to participate.

Consent forms will be available at the time of school registration.

The forms must be returned to the school by Sept. 5.
