FLU SHOT CLINIC: H-BC is pleased to once again partner with Sanford Luverne Clinic and the Luverne Area Community Foundation to offer flu vaccines to all children enrolled in grades K-12. If you wish for your child/ren to receive the shot, your insurance will be billed for the flu vaccine if you have coverage. However, through collaboration with the Luverne Area Community Foundation, all out-of-pocket and non-insured costs will be covered for school-aged children.

The in-school flu shot clinic will be held on Wednesday, October 12, 2022. To receive the flu shot, the attached consent forms must be completed and returned to the school by Monday, October 10, 2022.   For more information about this free flu shot clinic, contact Lois Leenderts, RN, school nurse, at
