Annual School-Based Flu Vaccination Program
The Stop Flu at School, Hawaii’s school-located vaccination program, is an innovative partnership between the State of Hawaii Departments of Health and Education, the Hawaii Association of Independent Schools, and Hawaii Catholic Schools. This program is endorsed by the Hawaii Chapter of the American Academy of Pediatrics and the Hawaii Association of Family Practitioners. The Stop Flu at School program aims to improve the health of Hawaii’s keiki, families, and kupuna by preventing the spread of influenza (flu) through vaccination.
Through the Stop Flu at School program, all children attending participating elementary and middle schools are offered FREE flu vaccine at school, during the school day. The program is voluntary for schools and students. Visit http://health.hawaii.gov/docd/flu-hawaii/SFAS_Schedule/ for the list of participating schools and their clinic dates. Vaccinations will begin in October 2013. Stop flu at school consent forms due 9/6/2013!
