Take advantage of the traveling flu clinic coming to Penn-Delco

  • Working with the Penn Delco School District, Health Hero PA kicks off their school located influenza vaccination clinics on Thursday, October 29, 2020 and Friday, October 30, 2020 (to accommodate the hybrid schedule).  Flu is among the top vaccine- preventable illnesses. Per the CDC, 25 to 50 million cases are reported each year in the United States. They lead to hundreds of thousands of hospitalizations and tens of thousands of deaths.  Schools are virus incubators, and school children are efficient virus spreaders – they have the highest rates of infection.

    The Health Hero program is a voluntary flu vaccination at school program that prevents the disease and reduces student absenteeism. The program has been safely immunizing children for years. This school year, an estimated half a million-school children will be immunized via this program.

    To help you keep your child well, Health Hero will be providing injectable flu vaccinations on Thursday, October 29 and Friday, October 30, 2020 at all schools in the Penn Delco School District. Please consider having your child vaccinated, help them become a Health Hero, and help us stop the spread of the flu in your school and homes.

    • Health Hero clinics are safe: a doctor oversees the program and only licensed professionals give the immunizations.
    • Health Hero clinics have no out of pocket costs: they immunize every healthy child that returns a signed consent form from their parent or guardian.

    To take part in the Health Hero Program, please read the information form and completely fill out, sign, and return the consent form sent home with your elementary child (elementary and secondary families can also download the vaccine information sheet and consent form here) to your school by October 23, 2020. Once your student is vaccinated they will receive immunization paperwork for your records.
