Flu is coming! Is your school ready? Flu vaccination is the best protection for your students, parents, and staff. Prevent student and teacher absences, doctor’s visits, and even hospitalizations. The flu vaccine is safe (millions of doses are given every year) and cannot cause flu (you may experience mild side effects such as a sore arm, low-grade fever, or achiness). The California Department of Public Health (CDPH) strongly recommends flu vaccine each fall for everyone 6 months of age and older.
Getting vaccinated is easy:
Contact your doctor, clinic, or pharmacy, and ask if they stock flu vaccine.
