The Houston Independent School District is partnering with Healthy Schools to offer free flu vaccines to students during the 2018-2019 school year.
A team of nurses and other staff from Healthy Schools will rotate to each campus for half-day clinics beginning in October through December.
Parents will be able to consent electronically or through a print copy. All parent consent forms and translations will be provided to campuses, and parents can either complete the form and submit to the campus prior to clinics or have their child bring the completed form on the day of clinic.
The flu vaccine is a primary way to protect yourself against the flu and an important measure in supporting school attendance during flu season.
Healthy Schools is an in-school health service provider that focuses on increasing access to quality, no-cost preventative healthcare for children.
