November 2020 - Focus on Influenza
August 2020 - Back-to-School Vaccinations
- Get ready for school by making sure that your child is up-to-date with all recommended vaccines. Ask your provider about the Vaccines for Children Program if you feel you may not be able to afford vaccines.
- Most school-aged children should get a flu vaccine every year, which is especially important this year to reduce the burden of the flu at a time when COVID-19 might also be circulating.
- COVID-19 might disrupt your local health department’s capacity to administer back-to-school vaccinations. Consider reaching out to your health department or health care provider early to ensure children have all required vaccinations prior to the start of school.
