  • No. When I got hurt and needed one the Health Dept told me I had 72 hours to get the shot. So it's not an immediate need. The parents have time to get the child to the dr or Health Dept for the shot.

  • My understanding (or at least I belive this is our schools policy) the nurse cannot give injections, she would call the parent and inform them of the situation and if the parent needs to come get the child and take them in to the doctor for medical treatment.

  • No, you would need to bring the child to their doctor.
