The flu season is here, once again. CDC recommends a yearly flu vaccine as the first and most important step in protecting against flu viruses. The Bayfield County Health Department is working with your child’s school to give the seasonal flu vaccine to children at school. The vaccine will protect against all flu strains that are expected to circulate this year.

Please read the attached vaccine information statement and consent form. Only return the consent form if you want your child to receive the flu vaccine. Please return the consent form to the school by October 20th by 8:30 a.m.
The forms can also be either attached to an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or faxed to the school at 715-373-0586.
