Health Hero America will be conducted flu clinics for students in GISD schools for the 2019-2020 school year. Flu clinics will occur in grades K-12 during the student's school day.
If you would like your child to be vaccinated, the consent form (link below) is required. You do not need to fill out a form if you do not want your child to get vaccinated!
Health Hero has provided over a million vaccinations to students across the country in the past decade. They have worked with several surrounding districts in central Texas. Their goal is to make immunizations readily available to any child, regardless of insurance coverage; there is NO out of pocket cost or copay.
If you would like your student to receive this immunization, please complete the attached consent form and return it to your campus nurse by November 25th, 2019. Flu clinics will begin on GISD campuses December 2nd - December 4th.

Georgetown ISD employs a registered professional nurse at every campus to serve as a liaison between school personnel, family, community and healthcare providers. Our registered nurses coordinate health services by identification, assessment, prevention and intervention in order to meet the medical needs of our students, who we believe to be our most valuable resource. Our goal is to promote optimal health for our students and to eliminate medical barriers that prevent them from reaching their educational potential.
GISD School Nurses serve as a resource to students, families and faculty by providing the most up to date information and instruction on health topics. They work to prevent the spread of communicable disease, maintaining health records on each student and prepare students to assume responsibility for their own health needs as they grow. Our nurses perform health screenings, refer for evaluation and treatment when appropriate and follow up to assure that students’ needs are being addressed.
We recognize the diverse health care needs of the children that we serve and strive to be an integral part of the multidisciplinary team that serves them and their families.
