    Flu Vaccine Clinics 2020

    We urge everyone to get a flu shot this year to protect yourself and the community. There are two ways you and your family can receive a flu vaccine at a school this fall — come to one of the "drive-through" events or at a School-Based Health Center.

    Flu and COVID-19 symptoms are similar. The same groups at risk for complications of the flu are at risk for COVID-19. Flu shots protect our most vulnerable students from getting ill and can help keep our students and staff healthy and in school. According to the CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention), the single best way to protect yourself and your family from influenza is to receive a flu shot each year.

    The CDC recommends everyone over the age of six months be vaccinated against the flu.

    School Sites with Flu Vaccine Clinics

    School nurses have partnered with the Seattle Visiting Nurse Association to vaccinate students, staff, and families through 32 "drive-through" events at 16 schools in September and October. Visiting Nurse Association clinics at the JSCEE are provided for staff to receive the vaccination.

    Parents may register all family members for a flu shot online via the registration link provided on the Health Services webpage. Please pick an appointment time and date when you register. Bring your insurance card to the clinic. To see the schedule of upcoming flu clinics and sign up for a flu shot visit the Health Services webpage.

    School-Based Health Centers

    School-based health centers located in our schools also offer flu shots to those students who are enrolled. Students who have no insurance and who are under 18 years old can get the flu shot at any school-based health centers.

    School-Based Health Centers (SBHCs) are available at many Seattle public middle and high schools. For a list of schools with school-based health centers, visit the King County School Health website.
