Nurses Notice

State DPH Update on Flu Vaccine Requirement:


On Friday, January 15, the Department of Public Health (DPH) sent a message to school nurses removing the flu vaccination from the Immunization Requirements for School Entry. While DPH continues to strongly recommend that everyone age 6 months and older receive a seasonal flu vaccine each year, DPH’s message stated that preliminary data show that this has been a mild flu season to date, presumably as people have received their seasonal flu vaccine and have been adhering to mask-wearing and social distancing due to COVID-19.
