This influenza (flu) season we would like to help protect our student body by providing flu vaccines during school hours. The Carroll County Health Department will be offering flu shots. If your child has health insurance, we will bill your insurance provider. The following vaccine will be available:


v  Flumist® (Live Attenuated Influenza Vaccine - LAIV): an influenza vaccine that is sprayed into the nose. This vaccine will be considered an option if no contraindications and if it is available on the date of your school’s flu clinic.

v  Inactivated Influenza Vaccine (IIV): an influenza vaccine that is given as a shot. Inactivated influenza vaccine will be quadrivalent (QIV).


For more information on the vaccine type above, please see the Vaccine Information Statement (VIS) attached.
