Flu Shots for Teens

FLU SHOTS                                   

 
Dear Parent/Guardian:
 
The South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control (DHEC) is working with your school district to provide flu shots at your child’s school this fall. It is important that all children get vaccinated every year. There will be no cost to you or your child for the flu shot at school. If applicable, payment from Medicaid will be made to DHEC on your behalf. If you would like your child to get a flu shot at school: 
 
1.    Go to http://www.scdhec.gov/slvcconsent using your smartphone, computer or tablet and enter [11001099]as your validation code.
 
2.    If you are not able to complete the online consent, complete the front of the form here and return it to school within (5) days of receiving this letter.
 
If your child does not receive the flu shot at school, please contact your child’s healthcare provider or health department to get the flu shot. 
Sincerely,
 
Teresa A. Foo, MD,MPH, MBA
