Healthy Schools, in cooperation with the Duval County Public Schools and the Florida Department of Health in Duval County is excited to kick off the “Teach Flu A Lesson” program in Duval County. 

Every year thousands of children miss valuable time in the classroom learning to read, write and do mathematics because of the dreaded flu.  If that isn’t bad enough, they bring it home with them, infecting loved ones, and causing them to miss work.  Based on data from around Florida and the rest of the country, we know the in-school vaccine program works and STOPS the flu in its tracks.  So please join me in encouraging all of our children to be properly vaccinated and help them become “Health Heroes” – -Help stop this flu season from being “one of the bad ones” in our schools and in our homes. 

Healthy Schools will be providing flu vaccinations in selected Duval and Clay County Public Schools.  The process is very simple.  All you have to do is fill out and sign the consent form that will be brought home by your student.  You can also access consent forms HERE
