School nurse available also during summer vacation

Vantaa schoolchildren and students have access to a nurse’s appointment also during the summer. Summer Nurses open their receptions in June in Tikkurila, in Nuorisotila Liito.

Encouraged by good experiences, Vantaa will continue the Summer Nurse reception also during this summer. This time, Summer Nurse is located in Tikkurila, in Nuorisotalo Liito, address: Lummetie 2B. The reception is open on Mon-Fri: 8:00-15:00. It will open on June 3 and end on August 2.

You can come to the summer reception with the same issues as during the school year. In earlier summers, schoolchildren and students have sought help in issues related to, among others, mood, vaccinations, dating, and sexual health. At the reception, you can also talk about your relationships with friends, your home situation, eating, sleeping, and use of the internet. You can also book a health check for a future 3rd- or 7th-grade.

A dental hygienist will be present on Mondays to counsel about and give tips on issues related to oral health.

“If you need a preliminary conscript's health check by a nurse, we urge you to make an advance appointment with a Summer Nurse. When making the appointment, the conscripts will be given guidance and told what information/documents they should take with them to the appointment,” says Jaana Karvonen-Lemmetty, head nurse, student health care.

“Health care students can come to the Summer Nurse to take care of the chartings and vaccinations stipulated by the Communicable Diseases Act, in good time before the beginning of their studies,” Karvonen-Lemmetty suggests.

It is easy to come and see the Summer Nurses: you can either make an advance appointment or just come to the reception. Summer nurses will serve schoolchildren and students, ranging from elementary school students to students at universities of applied sciences. Guardians are welcome to come and talk with the Summer Nurse, if they are concerned about their children.
