The Cardinal Community School District will offer flu shots to students and family members in October.
According to a press release, the Cardinal Community School District is partnering with Wapello County Public Health to offer flu shots to students and family members during the week of October 19-23. The flu shots are provided for free if your child or a family member qualifies. The number of doses will be prepared based on the number of shots requested, so it is important for families to fill out the flu vaccine waivers and return them to the school promptly.
The flu vaccine clinic will be open on the following dates and times:
- October 20th – High School Students 9 – 11:30 a.m., Middle School Students 12:30 – 3:00 p.m., Elementary Students and Families 3:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m.
- October 21st – Elementary Students 12:00 – 3:15 p.m., Elementary Students and Families 3:30 – 5:30 p.m.
For students that are 9 years of age or less, an additional flu shot will be required after 30 days. The second shot will be scheduled as soon as the school has an idea of the initial numbers.
