Voluntary Flu Vaccine Program
 
The Methacton School District is again partnering with the Montgomery County Health Department to offer a voluntary flu vaccine program for our students on November 23, 2015.
 
If interested, please complete the Registration Form/Survey linked here to register your child for the flu vaccine – you will need to complete a form for each child if registering more than one. Registration will close at 12 PM on November 17, 2015. 

The flu is a serious disease that can affect anyone, even our healthy students. The CDC recommends that all people aged 6 months and older receive a flu vaccine every year.

Because over 500 of our students received the flu vaccine in school last year, the schools saw a decrease in the amount of students diagnosed with the flu. Flu prevention enables our students to be in school, healthy and ready to learn.
