Fight the Flu!

Oct. 6, 2020.  "Now is the time for..." all families to fight the 'flu!  Because symptoms associated with the 'Flu, the "Common Cold", and Covid illness are similar, the MA Dept. of Public Health requires all students and younger children (ages 6 months - 30 years) to get a flu vaccine before Dec. 31, 2020:  MA DPH Flu Vaccine Requirement.  If you choose to have your students vaccinated with your Health Care Provider or at a Pharmacy, please provide documentation from one of these sources verifying vaccine administration details to your building nurse.  We are also hosting a vaccine clinic as follows:

Walgreens Flu Vaccine Clinic:  open to students age 9+ with parent/guardian presence and adults ages 18 and older

Mon, Oct. 19:  12-2 pm  at  Hatfield Elementary School:  Outdoors (if weather-permitting)

Bring Health Insurance information for billing.  Walgreens accepts most forms of insurance.
