Three Northwest ISD schools – Hatfield Elementary School, Byron Nelson High School and Eaton High School – will serve as hosts for flu clinics in mid-October.

Each clinic, operated by Passport Health and North Texas Flu Shots, will last from 3 to 6 p.m., beginning with Hatfield on Tuesday, Oct. 10, followed by Byron Nelson on Wednesday, Oct. 11, and Eaton on Thursday, Oct. 12. Insurance coverage will be accepted from Aetna, Blue Cross Blue Shield, Cigna and select United HealthCare PPO plans as well as Medicaid. Attendees should bring photocopies of an insurance card and the primary insured’s driver’s license.

Parents of children ages 18 and younger without any insurance may purchase vaccines for $10 per shot, with a four-vaccine limit per child. Those with insurance not directly accepted by the clinic can pay the cost of each vaccine through cash or check. A receipt will be provided to submit to insurance companies for reimbursement.

Passport Health and North Texas Flu Shots will provide the following immunizations at the clinics: flu, chicken pox, DTap, Gardasil, hepatitis A, hepatitis B, HIB, meningococcal, MMR, pneumonia, polio and TDap.
