Angie Allmer, nurse at Central Valley Health District and school nurse to the Jamestown Public School District, said the fall of the year is the busiest part of the school year.
“In the fall of the year we are doing vision screenings and flu shots,” she said.
Allmer said during the summer she reviews vaccination records to see if any students are missing shots required by North Dakota law.
“Many times it just slipped the parents’ mind,” she said. “The parents usually take care of it but if it’s a hardship, the school nurse can give the shots with the parent’s permission.”
