Flu Clinic Sign up Reminder

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.

The flu clinic date for EL Wright is 11/12/2019.  The online applications will close on November 4th and no late registrations or same-day registrations will be accepted.  

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 14002078 as your validation code.
  2. Complete the online consent and submit to DHEC.
  3.   If you are not able to complete the online consent, complete the front of the attached form and return it to the school nurse by November 4.  
  4.  Unfortunately, the online consent is not in Spanish. If needed, complete the Spanish consent form that is attached and return it to the school nurse by November 4th

On the day of the clinic, we give the students paperwork to take home indicating that they had their flu shot that day. 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.
