Flu shot

The Anacortes School District is partnering with the Seattle Visiting Nurse Association (SVNA) to provide a Flu Shot Clinic this fall.

Flu shots will be available at Anacortes Middle School (2202 M Avenue) Commons on Wednesday, September 20 from 3 to 7 p.m.

According to the CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention), the single best way to protect you and your family from influenza is to receive a “flu shot” each year. The CDC recommends that EVERYONE, over six months of age, should be vaccinated against the flu.

The clinic will be open to all Anacortes School District children (four years of age and older), their families and community members.

All participants will be asked to provide their health insurance information (card) to receive an immunization. SVNA will electronically bill the insurance plan for your flu shot. They bill almost all insurance plans, but are not able to accept Cigna. Flu shots are considered preventive care and normally are not subject to deductibles or co-pays. Students 18 years and under without current health insurance coverage will be offered a flu shot at no cost. Adults without current insurance coverage may pay the $30.00 immunization fee for standard Trivalent with cash or check.

Patient Consent Forms are available here. Please complete one for each person and bring the form(s) with you to the event. Forms will also be available at the clinic. Additional information about the flu can be found on our Health Services page
