Register your child to be vaccinated for flu in school
The time to sign up to have your child vaccinated at school is coming soon. Registration begins Aug. 9 and will end on Sept. 13 at 11 p.m.
Online registration is preferred. It's quick and easy, especially for those with two or more children. Paper forms will be available at Meet the Teacher or Step Into Learning events and in the school office. No late online or paper forms will be accepted.
Students in kindergarten through grade 12 are eligible to participate at:
- Most public and private schools in Olmsted County.
- Kasson-Mantorville, Hayfield and Triton Public Schools in Dodge County.
- Pine Island Public Schools.
- Most public and private schools in Mower County.
Mayo Clinic, Olmsted Medical Center, Olmsted County Public Health, Dodge County Public Health and Goodhue County Public Health support this program.
Flu vaccinations will be available as an injection or nose spray, if available. Nonmedicine, pain-reducing options will be available. Teachers will have a short video for their elementary classrooms to ease students' concerns.
