Health Hero coming this November to provide flu vaccine to children

Dear Parent or Guardian,

Working with the Gettysburg School District, Health Hero PA is excited to kick off our 2019 School located influenza vaccination clinics. Flu is among the top vaccine-preventable illnesses. Per the CDC, 25 to 50 million cases are reported each year in the United States. They lead to hundreds of thousands of hospitalizations and tens of thousands of deaths! Schools are virus incubators, and school children are efficient virus spreaders – they have the highest rates of infection. Our Health Hero program is a voluntary flu vaccination at school program that prevents the disease and reduces student absenteeism. The program has been safely
immunizing children for years. This school year, an estimated half a million-school
children will be immunized via this program. To help you keep your child well Health Hero will be providing quadrivalent Injectable flu vaccinations on Tuesday, November 19th at the Gettysburg School District. Please consider having your child vaccinated, help them become a Health Hero, and help us stop the spread of the flu in your school and homes.

· Our clinics are safe: a doctor oversees the program and only licensed professionals give the immunizations.
· Our clinics have no out of pocket costs: We immunize every healthy child that returns a signed consent form from their parent or guardian.

To take part in the Health Hero Program, please completely fill out, sign, and return the attached consent form to the school. Once your student is vaccinated they will receive immunization paperwork for your records. If you have any questions we encourage you to visit the CDC website at, Health Hero at or contact us at
