McKinley Flu Shot Clinic

 Dear Parent or Guardian:

The Bear River Health Department (BRHD) and Box Elder School District (BESD) are partnering to help protect students and teachers against flu. To make getting a flu shot more convenient, school nurses and BRHD staff will be offering flu clinics at your child’s school.  Clinics will take place after school.  At least one parent or legal guardian is required to attend the clinic with their child.  Please refer to the attached schedule for the date and time of the clinic at your child’s school.  Vaccines will be available to the students, parents and siblings if they attend with their child.

There are only flu shots this year.  Flumist is not available in the United States this year.  Vaccine information sheets will answer questions you may have regarding the vaccines.  In order for your child to receive a flu shot at the clinic, please visit www.brhd.org, and fill out the consent form and print them. Vaccine information sheets are also available.  Bring the completed consent to school the day of the clinic.

No child will be vaccinated without a signed consent form and parent or legal guardian present.

BRHD can bill several different insurances, please visit www.brhd.org for a current full listing.

Please remember to bring your insurance card, or a copy the day of the clinic.

If your insurance is NOT listed on the website OR your insurance does not cover flu vaccine, the cost will be $25.  A receipt will be given to you so you can apply for reimbursement with your insurance company.

If your child does not have insurance, the cost is $15. 

You have the opportunity to pay for the vaccine with any of the following methods:
  • Pay with cash or check. Make check payable to “BRHD”
  • Pay by credit or debit card the day of the clinic
If you have further questions about flu vaccines, we encourage you to call your doctor’s office or the BRHD at 435-792-6500.
