Does your child need immunizations? Is your student going to be in athletics? If so, join us at BJSHS on Monday May 16th from 2:30-5:30 for the Open Door clinic. A parent must be present for all immunizations to be administered as well as a consent for treatment being signed. If your student is 18 years old they do not need a parent present. Student and athletic physicals will be offered during this clinic also for $25.00 that must be paid at the time of the clinic. Please enter through the Sutton Center entrance, door 17 and you will be directed from there. Any questions please call Amy Sargent corporation nurse at 765-348-7560. You may also pick up a consent form from your school's health office prior to the clinic.
It's sure to be a great show! #BetterAtBlackford
