The state Department of Health is scheduling flu vaccination clinics at 185 public schools statewide from Oct. 14 -Nov. 27.
The annual Stop Flu at School program provides free flu shots to children in grades K-8 at participating schools across Hawaii.
Parents or guardians wanting their child to receive a free flu shot should return a completed consent form to their school by Aug. 23. Consent forms will be sent home with students at participating schools. Electronic forms also are available at vaxonlinereg.doh.hawaii.gov.
The list of participating schools can be found at health.hawaii.gov/docd/about-us/programs/stop-flu-at-school/.
Parents and guardians of students attending schools that will not have a school-located clinic should contact their child’s health care provider to receive the flu vaccine in their office.
