FREE FLU VACCINATIONS FOR WPS ELEMENTARY SCHOOL STUDENTS!
This week – through Thursday!
Brothers and sisters of WPS students may also get their vaccines!
Flu shots are the #1 way to prevent your kids from getting sick from influenza this winter! I get my flu shot every year, and every year I NEVER GET THE FLU! All this anti-vaccine rhetoric is over-the-top. Vaccines save lives! Kids and the elderly, and folks with compromised immune systems, can die of the flu! Get them vaccinated! Get yourself vaccinated! It’s for your family and the community’s health!
These WPS CLINICS are a snap!
It’s EASY. It’s FREE. Great, super nice professionals – at least they were great and super nice when I was a kid in the Worcester public schools and went to all the health clinics! And … the docs/nurses have special stuff for your child if he or she is allergic to eggs/can’t get the regular flu shot. Just tell the doc or nurse. Kids can be as young as six months and receive the vaccine – doctors and nurse practitioners can tell you more. Talk with them. They’re the health experts.
For the WPS flu clinics, a parent/guardian MUST be present with the child.
