TPS hosts in-school Flu Clinic for students

TPS is protecting its students against the flu.
Today students at 7 elementary schools can get the flu shot in-school thanks to Healthy Schools.
Healthy Schools is the nation's largest school vaccine provider.
. The vaccines are available at cost to staff or students. The school nurses or school offices have the consent forms for students to complete prior to the flu clinics.
The nurses from Healthy Schools will be at each school 1-2 hours based on the volume of participants. Any employee is eligible for the flu vaccine at no cost. They are encouraging all of your students to participate but it is not mandatory.
In the 2017-18 flu season, 80% of pediatric flu deaths occurred
in unvaccinated children according to the CDC.
