BENEFITS OF FLU VACCINATION 

• Annual vaccination is still the best way to protect yourself, your family, and people vulnerable to serious flu illness (older adults, children under 5 years, pregnant women, and people with chronic health conditions). 

• The flu vaccine may make your illness milder if you do get sick. 

• F l u vaccination can reduce the risk of more serious flu outcomes, like hospitalizations. The CDC recommends everyone get a flu shot each year. 

Quadrivalent (designed to protect against two influenza A and two influenza B viruses). 

VACCINE INFO 

No latex or thimerosal. 

The “high dose” flu vaccine (for people 65 and older) will be available at this event. 

It takes approximately 2 weeks to build up immunity after getting a flu shot. 

You cannot get the flu from the vaccine.

ALICE Evacuation Drill Wednesday Sept 4.

Steller will be exercising an ALICE (Alert-Lockdown-Inform-Counter-Evacuate) mandatory drill at 9:45 am, Wednesday Sept. 4.  Students will be with their 2ndperiod teacher.  They will lockdown, discuss options and possible evacuation sites, and evacuate from the building but stay on campus.  Students will then return to 2ndperiod to debrief with their class.  Students will be told from the beginning that this is only an exercise, and that the practice is to be executed in a calm, safe manner.  If you have questions please call me at 742-4950 or email me at:  Whitmore_reed@asdk12.org
