***ONLY FLU SHOTS WILL BE AVAILABLE DURING THE 2020-21 CLINICS AT WESTMINSTER SCHOOL AT OAK MOUTAIN, VESTAVIA HILLS CITY SCHOOLS, AND HOMEWOOD CITY SCHOOLS.  BOTH FLU SHOTS AND FLUMIST (IN LIMITED SUPPLY) WILL BE AVAILABLE AT HIGHLANDS SCHOOL AND LEEDS CITY SCHOOLS***
 
Alabama Immunization Partners was founded by local pediatricians in 2012 in response to Alabama State Legilsature Bill SJR-11.  This bill encouraged a partnership between community  immunizers and local school systems in order to provide school-based flu vaccine clinics.  All students are eligible to participate provided all of the necessary information is submitted to your school nurse or administrator before your school's deadline.  Last shool year we vaccinated over 3000 students and expect that to continue to grow.
 
For the 2020-2021 school year we will be returning to Vestavia Hills City Schools, Homewood City Schools,  Leeds City Schools, Highlands School, and Westminster School at Oak Mountain.
 
We employ pediatric-trained medical personnel to administer both flu shots and flumist (nasal spray) to students  from preschool through 12th grade.  All of our flu vaccines are preservative-free and are from respected manufacturers such as Medimmune, Sanofi Pasteur, and Glaxo-Smith-Kline. 
Please note that our staff will not restrain a student in order to give the vaccine.   If the student refuses we will recommend for you to take your child to their physician for vaccine adminstration.  Each child receives a record on the day of vaccination documenting which vaccine was given.
If you wish to have your child vaccinated at one of our school-based flu vaccine clinics you must return the Student Registration and Consent Form to your school's nurse, along with a copy of your child's insurance card.  Failure to answer all sections of the Student Registration and Consent Form, or to provide the insurance card, will result in your child not being vaccinated.  Your child's safety is out utmost concern. 
We take pride in partnering with your child's school system and hope that you find this service beneficial.  Please take a minute to thank your school system for allowing us to provide this service.
