Flu immunization clinics will be held at Bonner and Central

With winter on the way, area health officials are moving to protect children against influenza.

The Stewartville School District is teaming up with Olmsted County Public Health, the Olmsted Medical Center, the Mayo Clinic and the Southeast Minnesota Beacon Project to offer flu immunization clinics at Bonner Elementary School and Central Intermediate School this Thursday, Sept. 27.

The clinic at Bonner will be held from 9:15 a.m. to 11 a.m. The clinic at Central will run from 12:30 p.m. to 2:30 p.m.

Parents may register their children or find more information about the clinics at the Stewartville School District's Web site at, by clicking on "Flu clinic registration now available." Parents who do not have access to the Internet may register their children by completing paperwork at the Bonner Elementary School office.

"Protecting our children from influenza protects all of us," says the district's Web site, which shared information from the Minnesota Beacon Project. "The CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) now recommends that everyone six months and older get the flu vaccine every year."

The Beacon Project urges parents to get their children immunized against the flu because:

• Flu causes more than 36,000 annual deaths.

• Children are primary carriers of the flu.
