Super Shot Free In-School Flu Shot


FREE In-School Flu Shot with most insurance plans. No insurance, no problem!

 

Dear Northwest Allen County School Parent/Guardian,

In partnership with Super Shot, we will be providing in-school Flu Shots this Fall for NACS students. A specific date has not been determined yet, but will be released at a later date, please be on the lookout for that information. When students are immunized against the flu it keeps them healthy, prevents absenteeism, and keeps our entire school community healthy.

Most health insurance plans cover the cost of vaccines. Super Shot is required to bill insurance and will run eligibility per the completed consent. If the student has no insurance, there will be no out of pocket expense. Under the Affordable Care Act, vaccines are covered without any cost-sharing/co-pay requirements (when provided by an in-network provider). Super Shot is in-network with all Hoosier Healthwise (Medicaid) providers and most commercial insurance plans. Super Shot cannot accept Signature Care & Ambetter. Students with Signature Care & Ambetter insurance should not participate in this program to avoid out of pocket co-pays.

Please review the attached consent form to make sure your child meets the standards to receive the flu vaccine. If you answer “yes” to any of the screening questions, your child will not be eligible to receive the flu vaccine at school. We encourage you to take your child to his/her doctor or a Super Shot clinic for their flu shot. If your child meets the standards provided in the attached form, please complete the form and return it to school.

Please return the consent form to the school nurse’s office by Friday, September 4th, 2020 for your child to receive a flu shot at school. Attached is the Vaccine Information Sheet, for your review and reference.

Thanks for participating in the program. We look forward to working with you to protect your child and from influenza. If you have any questions please contact your school nurse.  For more information on Super Shot, go to Supershot.org
