Students Receive Flu Vaccinations

The Bibb County School District, in partnership with the North Central Health District and the Macon-Bibb County Health Department, again offered the flu vaccine to students. Nurses from the Macon-Bibb County Health Department visited schools throughout the District to administer the flu vaccine Monday, October 21, through Friday, November 1.

"The school district has a program for coordinated health for our students and our employees, and the flu vaccination program that we're initiating every year is part of the effort by the school district to do everything we can to keep our students and our employees healthy," said Director of Safety and Risk Management David Gowan.

Letters and consent forms were sent home with students for participation in the flu vaccination program. Students were required to submit a signed consent form to receive the flu vaccination, which was available by nasal mist or shot.

Flu vaccines given during the school-based flu vaccine campaign were available at no out of pocket expense to parents. Insurance was filed for students covered by Medicaid, Peachcare, Wellcare, Peachstate, Amerigroup, Blue Cross Blue Shield of Georgia PPO, or a State Health Benefit Plan through United Healthcare or Cigna.
