Flu Vaccination Clinics

Clinic Information

September 2017

Dear Parents,

Andover Public Schools values the ability to protect our students and staff from illness when possible. In an effort to reduce the incidence of flu in our community, we are once again collaborating with the Andover Health Department to provide flu vaccine to all students in grades 7 through 12.

This year the Fluzone product (nasal mist) is not available, therefore, only injectable vaccine will be offered.

We are extremely fortunate to be able to provide the quadrivalent vaccine for all students which immunizes against FOUR different types of flu virus, versus the standard trivalent vaccine that is being offered in most locations.

Note: Your child must be enrolled in the school in order to receive vaccine.

  1. Please review the Vaccine Information Statement for the injection (VIS)
  2. Print the insurance/consent form
  3. Complete the entire form and and sign at the bottom

4.   Send the completed form to the school nurse where your child is enrolled by the designated deadline. Late forms will only be honored if adequate vaccine is available.

It is important that parents review the Vaccine Information Statement. Some students may not be eligible for vaccine based on medical history  

You are NOT required to submit payment for the vaccine. The Town of Andover will bill your insurance company directly. Lack of medical coverage will not prevent your child from receiving the vaccine.

If your child is unable to attend the flu clinic on the date that has been assigned for his/her school, the Town of Andover will run a clinic for Andover residents on Tuesday November 7,th 4pm - 7pm at the Senior Center on Punchard Avenue.

Questions may be directed to:
Joanne Martel RN, Asst Director Andover Health Department (978) 623-8640
Rita Casper RN, APS District Coordinator for Nursing Services (978) 247-7042
