Fight the Flu in Arkansas

In partnership with the Arkansas Department of Health (ADH), DeWitt School District is holding Flu Immunization Clinics to provide flu vaccine for students. For your child to receive the flu vaccine, parents/guardians must:

  1. Read the Vaccine Information Statement for the vaccine included in the 2017-18 ADH Consent Form links on this page.
  2. Read and complete the front and back of the 2017-18 ADH Consent Form.
  3. PRINT clearly all information required on the 2017-18 ADH Consent Form.
  4. Make sure you have signed the 2017-18 ADH Consent Form for the flu vaccine.
  5. Sign the 2017-18 District FERPA Consent Form link on this page.
  6. Return both consent forms to your child's school by the dates listed.

IMPORTANT! Consent forms MUST be returned to DES, DMS, and DHS by the dates listed. NO EXCEPTIONS. No forms will be accepted the day of immunizations. All forms must be received by date TBA, for verification by local health units.

This is a great opportunity for children to receive this vaccine at no charge to parents/guardians. If you have insurance, ADH will ask your insurance company to pay for the cost of giving the vaccine. If you do not have insurance or your insurance does not pay for vaccines, there will still be no charge to you.

REMEMBER, only those students with the required completed paperwork (the signed ADH Consent Form AND the DeWitt School District FERPA Consent Form) will be allowed to receive the flu vaccine.
