Vaccinations

Aug 6, 2019

Staff & Faculty Immunization Clinics
The Mount Rodgers Public Health Wellness Team will be coming into the schools on September 16th and 17th to provide staff and faulty members flu, and Hepatitis A vaccinations. There will also be an option to receive a combination vaccine for Hepatitis A and B. Both of the Hepatitis vaccines will require follow up injections to complete the series. That schedule will be forthcoming. 
We may also be able to offer the shingles and pneumonia vaccines to individuals over 50 years of age, but I will need you to provide me with an estimated number of individuals interested in those vaccines. 
Here is the planned schedule:

Tuesday September 17

We have also already scheduled flu clinics for the student this October. Our 2019 flu clinics are scheduled for October 8. 9, and 10. I should receive a more specific schedule for each school sometime in September, and will send specifics out at that time. 

Vision Screening

Aug 6, 2019

Lion's Club Vision Screening
We have secured the assistance of the Lion's Club to perform vision screenings this year for all the students in grades that are required in statute for us to perform. That includes Kindergarten, 3rd, 7th, and 10th grades. We will also be screening students in PreK with a parent's written permission. I have attached a form for that purpose. Fortunately the Lion's Club has the equipment to provide a more comprehensive screening than has been available to us in the past. 
Screenings have been scheduled for the following dates:
