Location
Yankton High School

For the seventh consecutive year the South Dakota Department of Health, Yankton School District and Avera Sacred Heart Hospital is offering free Seasonal Flu vaccines for children in grades JrK-12th grade.

Vaccinating children helps protect them from serious influenza illness and complications and decreases the spread of influenza in the community, as children are often the biggest spreaders of influenza to adults and other children.

Children under the age of 9 years will need two doses of vaccine separated by 4 weeks if they are receiving influenza vaccine for the first time or if they have never  had 2 doses of seasonal vaccine and 1 dose of an H1N1 containing vaccine.   Parents will need to make an appointment with their healthcare provider to get the second dose.

The state is supplying the vaccine free of charge, and there will be no administration fee at school-based clinics.

The forms are also available on the school district website at www.ysd.k12.sd.us/flushots
