Flu Shots At Public Schools Start Tuesday

by Gabe Bullard on September 27, 2010

The Louisville Department of Health and Wellness will offer free flu and H1N1 shots to students at some public schools starting this week.

Last year, the department offered immunizations to all students. The money for that program came from federal grants to fight H1N1. That money is no longer available, so the department is working with the government’s Vaccines for Children program this year. Health director Dr. Adewale Troutman says the vaccines are free, but can only be offered at schools where at least 80 percent of the students are on free or reduced lunch.

“Other schools, the expectation is that the parents have insurance,” he says. “It’s easier for those kids to get the shots from the doctor’s office or the pharmacy and it’s easier to pay the going rate in the community. That’s what the expectation is.”

The vaccines are optional, and students will need a signed permission slip to receive a shot. The vaccinations begin Tuesday and continue through October 29th.

Public Health and Wellness nurses will immunize children attending these schools on the following days:
