Flu forms due today to Georgetown County schools

Georgetown County parents must turn in their consent forms today to their children's schools if they would like their students to receive free H1N1 flu vaccines Nov. 2.

There will be no makeup days to receive shots for those who miss the scheduled dates.

Children who are in pre-kindergarten through third grade will need to have a parent or guardian present to receive the shot.

Parents of students in other grade levels also are invited to be at the schools' clinics with their children.

Children younger than 10 years old need two doses of the vaccine. The second shot will be given between Thanksgiving and Christmas break.

An information letter on the second vaccine will be sent at a later date, officials said.
