Once again, Mercy will host an influenza clinic on Tuesday, October 14th, 2014 in partnership with the Visiting Nurse Association of Southeast Michigan (VNA) and Alana's Foundation. The foundation was established in 2009 in memory of then five year old Alana Yaksich who died of influenza in 2003.
The clinic will be held from 12:30-3:30 pm in Mercy's lobby (Auditorium lobby) on October 14th and is available to students, staff, and families of Mercy. It does, however, require advance registration for each person who wishes to receive the vaccination here on October 14th. We have provided all of the information you need. See the flyer, the Vaccine Information Sheet, and the Notice of Privacy Practices. Please print, complete and return the Assessment and Consent Form to the Reception Area no later than Wednesday October 1st, 2014. A separate consent form must be completed (and turned in at the Reception area) for each person who is to be vaccinated. Parents must complete and sign the form for anyone under the age of 18. All consent forms are required in advance because the VNA must determine the actual number of doses needed for the day of the clinic.
There is no cost for the vaccination. Most insurance companies cover the cost of the vaccination but Alana's Foundation will pick up the cost for any person who does not have insurance coverage. Please note: On October 14th all persons who have pre-registered will present a picture ID and the insurance card (or a copy of the insurance card) in order to receive the vaccination.
Mercy is happy to offer our facility for this clinic and we hope you will take advantage of the opportunity for your daughter and/or yourself. Please consult with your family physician regarding any questions about the vaccine.
