It's contagious!

Flu germs start spreading a day before the first sniffle.

What to Expect at Flu Vaccine Days

We bring in the health professionals to give flu protection to all participating students. The vaccine is a good way to protect the kids against flu germs –

Plus, it’s:

  • Safe: It’s the same one your child would get from your regular healthcare provider.
  • Convenient: The whole process takes place during school hours.
  • Easy: Most kids only need a nasal spray instead of an injection.*
Students with asthma and other conditions may not be eligible to receive the nasal spray. Their medical history will inform health professionals if your student will require an injection instead.

Pass the peas, not the flu.

A single cough can spread flu germs 6 feet.
