Dr. James Pfister will provide a flu clinic for ESD families/students this year on Friday, October 19 from 7:30 to 9:00 a.m. in the Health Clinic on the Merrell Campus. Anyone six months and older may receive the flu vaccine during the clinic so mark your calendars now! This year's vaccine provides coverage for Influenza A, H1N1 as well as 2 Influenza B strains. The cost will be $30 per person and payment will only be accepted in the form of cash or check made payable to Dr. Pfister. No appointment is necessary, but it is nice to know how many people to plan for, so an email to Marcia Biggs would be greatly appreciated. Biggsm@esdallas.org
This is a great opportunity to protect our school community and your family against influenza, so we hope you will take advantage and get immunized!
