Health Heroes Hosts Drive-Up Vaccine Clinic at Lincoln Elementary on October 23
In partnership with Akron Children’s Hospital School Health Services, Health Heroes Inc. will offer a DRIVE-UP TDaP, Meningitis and Flu vaccine clinic at Lincoln Elementary School on Friday October 23, 2020 from 2pm – 6pm. Health Heroes flu vaccination clinics are completely voluntary and are offered to ALL consented students, regardless of their insurance coverage.
Who should get Tdap and/or Meningitis vaccinations?
- All 7th graders (both Tdap & Meningitis are required)
- All 12th graders (Meningitis vaccines are required, 2nd dose)
- Any 8th -12th grader who did not get these vaccines in 7th grade
Why get a flu vaccine?
The best way to minimize or avoid the spread of flu is to get an annual flu vaccination. Each year the vaccine protects against new strains, therefore, the vaccine should be administered annually.
Who is Health Heroes, Inc.?
Health Heroes specializes in on-site vaccination clinics. Vaccines are provided at a NO out-of-pocket expense to students. They bill both Medicaid and private insurance; however, they never bill students or parents for any out-of-pocket expenses or deductibles. Qualifying uninsured students can be given the vaccine, free of charge. Although student participation is voluntary, these vaccinations are recommended to help keep schools healthy and cut down on high absenteeism.
What do you need to do to participate?
