For many years flu shots were provided by the board for our convenience during the workday. This year we still have not heard whether or not they will be offered.
Since all of us are exposed to all sorts of nasty illnesses this is not such a bad idea, considering a bad flu can keep you away from your classroom for a week or lead to other health concerns.
Flu shots are preventative immunizations and are covered at 100% with no copay and are not subject to your deductible if you go to a network provider. You can arrange to get one from your physician, minute clinic, or pharmacy.
