Update: School Flu Clinic Will Be Rescheduled
We recently learned that manufacturing problems will cause a nationwide delay in the production of FluMist, the intranasal flu vaccine. Because FluMist is used for our school clinic, our flu clinic must be rescheduled.
Medimmune, the company that makes FluMist, expects to correct this problem by the end of November. For this reason, we are rescheduling our school's flu clinic for December. Depending on when the vaccine is ready, it is possible that our clinic may be held as early as November or as late as January.
Important things to know about influenza ("the flu") and the FluMist manufacturing situation:
We appreciate your patience and cooperation and will be in touch about the new flu clinic date. In the meantime, if you have not already, please return your child's FluMist consent form by October 30.
If you have any questions, please contact Lee Ann Pazulski, RN at 410-313-5610.
