Alabama Department of Public Health will offer a free wellness screening and flu vaccine to employees during the month of October and November. The wellness screening is a requirement for employees and spouses covered under PEEHIP Blue Cross and Blue Shield Insurance in order to avoid an increase in insurance premiums. The school nurse will have sign-up sheets available at each school site. (Flu vaccine is available but not a requirement of the wellness screening.)
