Oct. 5, 2021 – Duval County Public Schools has partnered with Health Hero Florida to offer no-cost in-school flu vaccinations to students during the school day.
WHAT: Beginning early October – November 2021, each district school will host an in-school flu vaccination event at no cost to families. To opt-in, parents must download and complete the consent form. Contact your child’s school for the exact date of that school’s flu vaccination clinic.
WHY: Health Hero Florida makes immunizations available to every child in an effort to stop diseases like the flu in their tracks, and reduce absenteeism in schools. Flu season normally peaks between December and February, and can last all the way through May, so fall clinics are the perfect time for your child to receive a flu vaccine.
Parents/guardians interested in opting their child in can download and complete the consent form.
