We’re Shooing The Flu In Oakland
Flu vaccine days are happening now in schools all across Oakland. The good news? It’s not too late to make sure your student gets vaccinated.
If you missed out the first time, there’s still one more chance to make sure your student gets flu protection at no cost during school. Here’s how:
As a reminder: all students in pre-k through 5th grade (in some cases up to 8th grade) at participating Oakland schools are eligible to get the vaccine at no cost — with or without insurance. Contact your school for more information about the make-up days.Print Consent Form
Flu germs start spreading a day before the first sniffle.
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 –
A single cough can spread flu germs 6 feet.
It's the best defense we've got against the flu.
Cough & sneeze into your elbow to help stop the spread of flu.
It’s easy to make sure your whole family gets vaccinated, too. Visit the Alameda County Public Health Department online to see a list of free clinics in your area.
It’s easy to find out if your child’s school is participating in Shoo the Flu. Check out the list.
