South Umpqua School District is partnering with Evergreen Family Medicine to provide vaccines onsite at our schools. A nurse from Evergreen Medicine will be onsite to answer questions and administer vaccines.
Vaccines will be offered to students at no cost to families. *Insurance will be billed, but there will be no out-of-pocket costs, regardless of insurance coverage.
To receive a vaccine, each student will need a consent form signed by a parent or guardian. There are a few ways to access a consent form:
* If your child is not an Evergreen Family Medicine patient already or hasn’t been seen in a year, you must also fill out this additional consent form, as a visit via our telehealth provider may be necessary.

- Vaccines can help project your child from getting certain diseases.
