Who needs a flu shot

Flu Vaccination Clinic for DCMS on October 22 nd

The Dawson County Health Department is working with the Dawson County School System to have the seasonal influenza vaccine available to your child for the upcoming flu season. The influenza vaccine will help protect against influenza strains that are expected to circulate this year. We will hold a Flu Vaccination Clinic for DCMS on October 22nd during school hours.

The vaccine consent form includes options allowing you to either accept or refuse the vaccination for your child.  If you refuse, the vaccination will not be given to your child.

To accept the vaccination for your child, please follow the steps below:

  1. Read the Vaccine Information Statements (links are below) that are available on the school website or one can be sent home upon request.

  2. Sign and date the included consent form to accept vaccination for your child.

  3. Return the consent form to the school by October 8th.

  4. If you accept vaccination, the vaccine will be given to your child during the scheduled vaccination clinic.

  5. School staff will send out a reminder by email and a phone reminder a few days prior to the vaccination clinic.

Please understand that participation and receipt of the influenza vaccine through this program is completely voluntary.  If you have any questions about the vaccine or the vaccination clinics, please call:  706-265-2611 from 8-5 Monday through Friday.  Your child’s health care provider can also answer your questions regarding the influenza virus and will be able to give your child the seasonal influenza vaccine.  For additional information please visit the CDC’s influenza web site at
