SOMERSET CO., Md. - Youngsters in Somerset County can get free flu vaccinations this season. The county's health department announced that any student will have access to a free Seasonal Flumist vaccine during school hours, starting in October. Flumist is a nasal spray, so no needles are used.
They say that students will soon bring home information and a consent form for parents, who are urged to get the paperwork back to the school nurse as soon as possible. Parents do not need to be present during the vaccination. If you have any questions, give the Somerset County health Department a call at 443-523-1740.
