Hello Redwood Heights Community!

Free Flu shots are coming to RHS next Monday, October 9th!  

Every year Shoo the Flu, in partnership with the Alameda County Public Health Department, provides free flu shots to our students who have completed a consent form.  Your student was sent home with a consent form on September 19th.  

The flu vaccine will be given at school, during school hours, by trained nurses and supervised nursing students.  It is the same vaccine your student would get from your usual doctor or clinic.

If you would like your student to receive the vaccine, please return your consent form by this Friday.  More Free Flu Shots at School consent forms are available at the front office. Please contact your teacher or Ms. Margaret if you have questions.

Thank you!
