The Montgomery County Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) will conduct free, seasonal flu vaccine clinics at three MCPS high schools in November. For students to receive a flu shot at any of these clinics, a parent, guardian, or adult must accompany them and bring a completed and signed Consent Form. The vaccination for seasonal flu is entirely voluntary and is NOT required for school.
School-based Flu Vaccination Clinic Date
On November 13, 2018, DHHS will hold vaccination clinics to administer the injectable flu vaccine for school-aged children only at John F. Kennedy, Rockville, and Northwest high schools. Parents or guardians must make appointments for their child to receive a vaccination at these clinics either online or by calling 311.
All clinics are free, but registration is required due to limited vaccine supplies.
The injectable seasonal flu vaccine will be available, at no charge, at other DHHS flu clinics at various locations in the county, October through December. For information about these clinics visit the Montgomery County website.
