“We understand the link between the number of days spent in school and academic success, so we are happy to offer this program to Merced kids to keep them healthy and in their desks.”
Golden Valley Health Centers nurses are offering flu vaccines on Tuesday, November 22 to the Boys and Girls Club members and their families. Kassey Mosher, the executive director for the Golden Valley Health Centers Foundation, is excited to partner with the Boys and Girls Club in order to ensure the health of the Merced community.
Flu shots will be available from noon to 5:00 p.m. at the Boys and Girls Club in Merced. Anyone over the age of four can receive the vaccine. All children must be accompanied by an adult, and all participants have to sign a consent form.
To make it possible for the youth to get the flu vaccine, donations were made by the Merced County Department of Public Health and West America Bank in Merced.
Tony Slaton, the executive director for the Boys and Girls Club of Merced County, is excited to be able to offer this to the youth because it correlates with their focus areas – health and academic success.
This program is helping keep youth healthy and keeping them in their desks at school instead of home sick.
