Influenza Reminder!

Dear Parent(s):                                                                                                                                                                

We are entering influenza season, and this letter is a reminder to discuss influenza vaccination with your child’s pediatrician. Influenza vaccines are still available, and receiving the vaccine is the number one way to prevent this illness. Every year influenza is responsible for causing serious illness, hospitalizations and even death - and often in otherwise healthy children. Influenza cases are being confirmed already in our school district. CLICK HERE for the complete letter
