Conway School District is holding numerous flu clinics to prevent illness this flu season.   

CHS students and staff will be able to participate with the staff being first on October 3 from 7:45-12:15 in the first floor computer lab.  Students district wide can receive the flu vaccine October 16 from 4-7 p.m. in the CHS cafeteria.   If interested parents can pick up consents at school as well with insurance information. These are also the same nights as Elementary parent – teacher conferences so parents can plan accordingly. A separate community-wide flu clinic will be held at the Faulkner County Health union October 30th from 8:00 am-5:03 pm and is open to anyone. Both the flu shot and the flu mist will be available at the October 30th clinic. 

 “[It’s important] to provide protection against [flu] especially [for] people with chronic illness, children, elderly, but in theory the more people that are vaccinated the more protection is provided for the population,” Nurse Cheryl Bramlett said.
