Deering High School
Vaccinate Against the Flu!
Flu season is here and while every year it is important to get the flu shot, it is especially important this year!
Greater Portland Health's Student Based Health Center will be administering flu shots on the afternoons of 10/20, 10/23, 10/27 and 10/30. This is by appointment only. Please contact Ms Nalli, School Nurse, for a flu shot appointment (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Insurance will be billed for vaccines, but if you do not have any insurance then there is no cost for this vaccine.
Students must complete the below Registration and Consent form and bring it to the school nurse prior to the vaccine appointment. If under 18 years of age, a parent/guardian must sign the consent form.
Other places to get a flu shot include: pediatrician's office, primary care doctor's offices, pharmacies (Walgreens, CVS, Hannaford....). There are lots of places to get a flu shot in Portland!
