Flu vaccine is coming to Vestavia Hills City Schools during the week of October 3-6. Look for information and permission forms to come home with your student on September 6th.
NEW THIS YEAR: Only injections will be available this year. The Centers for Disease Control has recommended that the Flu Mist not be given to any one this year based on data that shows relatively lower effectiveness in recent years. Because of this recommendation, the nasal vaccine will not be offered at school and will likely not be available anywhere this flu season.

Because scoliosis, a curvature of the spine, generally presents itself during the growth period, Alabama State Law requires screening for all 5th through 9th grade students. We will be conducting screens for the 9th grade during the month of March. While required, parents have the option of waiving their child’s participation. If you do not wish for your child to be screened, please sign the scoliosis consent form and return it by Friday, March 4, 2016.
