An independent contractor will provide some medical services to employees, the Northwestern School Board was told at the Sept. 19 meeting.

There will be no cost to the district as it will come under the health insurance coverage.

Immunization clinics will be held at the school and will provide vaccinations against shingles, flu, pneumonia, tetanus and Hepatitis A and B.
