VAKS Flu Clinic
Vaccinating Alabama Kids in Schools (VAKS), a subsidiary of Huntsville Pediatric Associates, will be conducting in-school flu vaccination clinics in the Fall of 2020 at each school in the Huntsville City School district. Challenger Elementary is scheduled for Wednesday, 9/18/19 from 9:45-10:45 AM. The in-school flu vaccination clinics are voluntary and will be offered to all students within Huntsville City Schools at no cost to the student, parent/guardian or school system. Each clinic will take approximately one hour to conduct and be staffed by local Board-certified pediatricians.
For a student to receive the in-school flu vaccine, the parent/guardian must sign a completed consent form which was sent home the week of 9/3/19. Students with PEEHIP insurance are not eligible to participate. Students' teachers will retain their completed form as their "hall pass" to present to the VAKS staff. The flu vaccine will not be given to students who do not present a signed consent form.
