There’s still time to get the flu vaccine this season.

The flu vaccine is recommended for all kids (and adults!) age 6 months and older, and most kids only need a nasal spray instead of a shot.* For full protection, 2 doses may be required for children under age 9.
Students with asthma and some other medical conditions may not be eligible to receive the nasal spray vaccine. Their medical history will inform the nurses if they will need a flu shot instead.
