Free Flu Immunization Program 2019
Due to the prevalence and potential severity of this year’s flu virus, the Alachua County Health Department and Alachua County Public Schools are offering a second round of flu vaccinations in our schools. Flu season in Florida has not yet reached its peak, and unfortunately hospitalizations and even deaths of children from the flu continue to be reported.
This round of vaccinations will be flu shots only. As always, the shots are FREE, safe and will be administered at school during the school day. If your child received a flu vaccine earlier this school year, he or she does NOT need another vaccination.
For your student to participate, you must return a completed consent form to your child’s school by February 21.
The application is available on this site. You will also find a parent information letter, a vaccine information sheet and a privacy notice.
If you have any questions, please contact the Alachua County Health Department at (352) 334-7916.
