Dear Orono Staff and Parents,
With the help of the Bangor Public Health Department, I am pleased to be able to offer a flu vaccine clinic to staff, students and parents at the Orono Schools.
The first Flu Clinic date will be Monday, October 19th from 1:00-4:00 pm. This will be at Asa Adams, probably in the large enclosed tent in front of the school. The second Flu Clinic will be on Thursday, October 22nd from 1:00pm-4:30pm in the high school/middle school library. It may possibly be outside under a tent, if the weather cooperates.
For all students, the vaccine is FREE, but the insurance portion on the permission sheet must be completed. For staff and community members, we are able to bill Anthem, Cigna, Harvard Pilgrim and Maine Community Health Options, so please complete your insurance information on to the form ahead of time, or bring your card. For other adults who have other insurance options, there is a $25 fee.
There should be a copy of this letter and a Health Screen and Permission form sent home with each child at Asa Adams. Otherwise, you may copy one from the school web page or school Facebook page for the middle school. There will also be hard copies available at the middle school and high school Main offices. If a parent requests, I could also make sure that a copy goes home with your middle or high school student.
Thank you for your interest in having this available. Here is to a happy and healthy fall and winter.
Karen Martin BSN/RN Orono School Nurse
