What To Expect During Shoo the Flu Vaccine Days
Reasons to Vaccinate Against the Flu
It’s no secret that benefits of flu vaccination help the whole community. It’s the best defense we’ve got against the flu. Plus, it can help:
- Improve attendance. Students stay healthy, which means fewer sick days home from school.
- Lesson plans stay on track. Better attendance helps more students keep up with their studies.
- Teachers stay healthy, too. With less exposure to sick students, your risk of catching the flu decreases.
Who to Contact
Every school should have a designated staff member who can help answer Shoo the Flu questions specific to your school. Simply contact the front office to find out who yours is.
