Nov. 25, 2020 – During the COVID-19 pandemic, fighting the flu virus has become even more important.
This is why Duval schools is teaming up with the Department of Health (DOH) to set up in-school flu immunization clinics at schools beginning Nov. 30.
Each weekday, between Nov. 30 and Dec. 18, DOH medical professionals will set up a clinic at different schools for a set number of hours.
Schools have been in the process of distributing parent consent forms. Flu vaccines will be offered to students who have a signed form.
Participation is not mandatory, and only children who have a signed consent form from their parent will be eligible for a flu vaccine.
Parents are encouraged to contact their child’s school to learn when the clinic will be set up at their school.
For parents and guardians, who are un-insured and in need of a flu vaccination, please visit the Duval County Medical Society’s website at fluvaxjax.com. Once there, select “Get a Vaccine” and then “Click Here” to get a no-cost flu vaccine voucher through the #FluVaxJax program.
More information is available on this Flu Vaccine Fact Sheet for children from the Duval County Medical Society.
Note – DOH-Duval will provide flu vaccines to children who missed their day at school, those who are virtual schooling and those enrolled in charter schools on Saturday, Dec. 19, from 9:00am to 1:00pm at Central Health Plaza, East building, 515 W. 6th Street.
