Health Hero Program

We have some exciting news to share. We are working with the Health Hero program to bring vaccine clinics to Blackford County Schools!

On Thursday, December 20 Health Hero will be at each school for about an hour during the school day offering flu vaccines to students and staff. Our health careers/CNA students from the high school will be helping with the clinics. This will be a great opportunity for them to see preventative healthcare in action!

The paperwork is a simple one page consent with insurance information. Health Hero will vaccinate any student with consent, regardless of insurance, and any staff member with insurance at no cost to the student, staff member, or school. Consent forms are due to the school's health office by Wednesday, December 19.

We plan to offer this flu clinic every year in October. Health Hero will also offer a second semester in-school vaccine clinic providing the necessary school vaccines for incoming 6th and 12th graders for the 2019-2020 school year. This is a wonderful opportunity to keep our students healthy, keep them in school, and keep them learning!

Please help us spread the word. Please contact any of the school health offices with questions, and see our Health Hero program flyer for consent forms and additional information.
