Over the next month, the Fond du Lac County Health Department will be offering influenza vaccine free of charge at schools throughout the county for children in 4K through Grade 12.   “Flu vaccine is recommended for everyone ages 6 months and older” says Kim Mueller, Health Officer of Fond du Lac County. “We are delighted to work with the schools again this year to provide protection for our school aged children from seasonal influenza”  “We encourage parents who would like their child to be vaccinated to watch for more information from their child’s school over the next few weeks” added Mueller. Parents will be informed of the date the influenza clinics will be held at their child’s school, a consent form, and information about the vaccines being offered.  (Both nasal mist and flu shots will be available).  The Health Department is also holding multiple flu clinics open to adults; cost is $25 and depending on insurance coverage the vaccine could be free.
