The Popular FLUMIST is Back
The Florida Department of Health in Alachua County makes vaccinating your children for influenza convenient, in addition to providing this service at no cost to parents and guardians. Due to nationwide supply issues, the popular FLUMIST will be provided during this year's school flu clinics to all public and private elementary school students, while the shot will be offered to all middle and high schoolers. Annual vaccinations are safe and provide protection for you, your family, and our community each flu season. Download and fill out the consent form below to ensure that your child receives this illness preventing and potentially lifesaving yearly vaccination. Have your child bring the completed forms to their school, or accompany them to the health department.
