About NB Strong

NB Strong is NBISD's Employee Wellness initiative to serve as a resource for health and wellness. 

 

"Healthy employees are more productive, have more energy and better manage stress. Employee wellness programs can keep your staff healthy, decrease sick days, lower insurance costs, and increase employee retention. Healthy employees are just as important as healthy students, especially in their ability to be a model of health for students" ~Alliance for a Healthier Generation

      On the date of your vaccinations, you must bring a photo copy of both your insurance card and your driver’s license to receive your vaccinations at no charge. 

      If you received routine vaccinations from North Texas Flu Shots in previous years, other than flu, and need a copy of your records, please email us at info@stayinghealthymedical.com.   In the email you will need to include the email address you want the records sent to, your name, date of birth and your insurance ID number.  Please do this at least a week before your scheduled flu clinic to ensure we have ample time send you your records.

      Depending on the carrier, insurance claims may be filed as Community Health and Immunization Services or Staying Healthy Medical Services.

  • The single best way to prevent seasonal flu is to get vaccinated each year, but good health habits like covering your cough and washing your hands often can help stop the spread of germs and prevent respiratory illnesses like the flu. There also are flu antiviral drugs that can be used to treat and prevent flu.

    1. Avoid close contact.

    Avoid close contact with people who are sick. When you are sick, keep your distance from others to protect them from getting sick too.

    2. Stay home when you are sick.

    If possible, stay home from work, school, and errands when you are sick. This will help prevent spreading your illness to others.

    3. Cover your mouth and nose.

    Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when coughing or sneezing. It may prevent those around you from getting sick.

    4. Clean your hands.

    Washing your hands often will help protect you from germs. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand rub.

    5. Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth.

    Germs are often spread when a person touches something that is contaminated with germs and then touches his or her eyes, nose, or mouth.

    6. Practice other good health habits.

    Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces at home, work or school, especially when someone is ill. Get plenty of sleep, be physically active, manage your stress, drink plenty of fluids, and eat nutritious food.
