SARASOTA COUNTY, Nov. 15, 2017 - The Florida Department of Health in Sarasota County will offer free flu vaccinations from Tuesday, Nov. 28 through Thursday, Nov. 30 at all Sarasota County schools. Anyone 19 or younger may be vaccinated at the clinic.

A flu vaccination is the best and safest way to protect students against several flu viruses. Protection will be effective within two weeks and should last until the end of the flu season. It’s important for children to be immunized for their own protection and to prevent the flu from spreading to families. Children do not need to be accompanied by a parent or guardian to receive a vaccination.

Permission slips will go home with students the week of Nov. 13 and should be returned by Tuesday, Nov. 21.

For more information call the School Health Office at 941-927-9000, ext. 32101.
