Free flu clinics available for students

Did you know? Every year an estimated 20,000 children younger than 5 years old are hospitalized for flu complications. #fightflu

Springfield Public Schools, with support from CoxHealth, Mercy, and the Springfield-Greene County Health Department, is offering the seasonal flu vaccine to any student free of charge, as supply allows.  Flu vaccine clinics will be held at each school site.  It is extremely important that we protect our students and staff from the flu this year to ensure we are able to continue providing in-person learning.  

A completed and signed consent form is required for each student to receive the vaccine.  To obtain the consent form, review the clinics schedule, and to learn more about the vaccine, click here.
