Frequently Asked Questions
Are you an occupation health group?
No. Healthy Schools LLC is a Florida based (Jacksonville) Vaccine For Children Provider (which allows for us to provide for the completely uninsured students) working with local schools districts and the local health department to provide school located vaccine clinics (SLVC).
Some parents will ask why they cannot simply check uninsured- the answer is because it’s considered welfare fraud. The vaccine provided for Medicaid and uninsured students is give at no cost through HHS/CDC- we have to keep the stock(vaccine) separated and qualify that only eligible students received the government provided vaccine. The vaccines are identical in terms of quality/manufacturer/etc. but we keep lot numbers for verification purposes.
Who receives the consent forms and keeps the paperwork?
We will send pre-printed consent forms to each of the participating schools to the attention of the school RN or the point of contact that has been established by the school district.
These forms will go out to all students with the request they are returned within 10 -14 days to their school. The schools will retain the forms until the clinic date.
Who schedules the clinics?
We schedule all of our clinics with the local school district. We work with the school system to find the best dates, times, and locations that work with the individual school needs, paying special attention to testing days.
Do you provide for all the students?
Yes. All students may participate and there is no cost to families. The benefit is providing better protection against the flu this season.
