Health Heroes is partnering with OCPS to administer on site flu vaccinations to students this fall. This opportunity will take place at Boone High School on Tuesday, November 16th. Health Heroes Florida flu vaccination clinics are voluntary and are available to all consented students regardless of insurance coverage. You can obtain a consent form here on our website or in student services office on campus. All consent forms will need to be completely filled in and returned to students services by November 10th to be eligible to participate in the flu vaccination clinic on November 16th.

 

Frequently Asked Questions:

 

Will you force a child to get the vaccine? Absolutely not! A student must have a signed parent/guardian consent form. If a student is adamant that they do not want to receive the vaccine (asking for their parent/guardian, wanting to leave the room, etc.), the parent/guardian will be notified by the school that the student did not receive the vaccine.

 

Can parents be present? No. We find having parents present significantly slows down the efficiency of the clinics.

 

When should schools send consent forms home? Please send the consent forms to student services by November 10th. Passes to flu shots will be handed out in advance.

 

What if a child doesn’t have insurance? That is okay! Our goal is to vaccinate any child regardless of insurance coverage. Please have the parent check the appropriate box underneath the insurance section of the form.

 

What if a parent thinks their insurance will not cover the cost? No child pays any form of a copay to receive the vaccine with our program. Please have the parent fill out the form to the best of their ability but know, it is free to the family.

 

Do the parents have to fill the form out in its entirety? Yes
