Please remember to pick up all medications from the clinic before Friday, June 6.  Medications cannot be left in the clinic during the summer.  Any medications not picked up by a parent or designated adult will be discarded.  New medication forms for the 2014-2015 year are available in the clinic. 

  Flu season is here!  The CDC recommends all people 6 months of age and older receive a flu vaccination.  This year the vaccine provides protection against the H1N1 influenza and two other influenza viruses.  The vaccine is still available - contact your pediatrician, family physician or local pharmacy for appointment times.  It is never too early or too late to receive a flu shot!  For more flu information, please go to www.cdc.gov.
