    Stopping the Flu Starts with You

     School season is prime time for classes, homework, sports… and the flu. With the flu virus most active from October to May, getting vaccinated is the #1 way to prevent the flu and the fever, sore throat, body aches, and even serious health complications it can cause. We are partnering with the Chester County Health Department to offer a flu shot clinic to community members.


    When: October 25, 2016 2:30pm-6:00pm

    Where: Senior High School Nurse’s Office

                   226 Highland Rd.

                   Atglen, Pa 19310


    For more information, visit

    *Same day, onsite registration only. If you prefer, you may print the registration forms to fill out ahead of time and bring them to the clinic.

    *If you have health insurance, bring your cards. All insurance types, including medical assistance, are welcome. There is no upfront cost involved. Your insurance will be billed. If you do not have insurance or your insurance does not cover the flu vaccine, it will be covered by the Chester County Health Department.

    *The CDC is not recommending the FluMist nasal spray this year. The CCHD will only have injectable vaccine at its clinics.

    *The vaccine is quadrivalent
