MCPS has partnered with the New River Health District to provide free flu vaccinations to students at all schools. Vaccination clinics are scheduled between October 13 and October 27 at each school.

Parents must complete a consent form for their child to receive the flu vaccine by health department officials at school. There is no eligibility requirement to receive a free flu vaccine. The consent form includes a section for health insurance information – the law requires the health department to collect this on all participants. Parents will not be asked to pay for the vaccine if they are uninsured. Insured parents will not be billed for any vaccine cost not covered by their insurance policy.

Parents must submit the vaccination consent form by Monday, September 25 for their child to be included in the vaccine clinic. The form should be returned to the child’s school.
