APS News Release

Free Flu Shots for All APS Students

Update on Oct. 25: This year, Arlington Public Schools is partnering with Healthy Schools, the nation’s largest school vaccine provider, to offer flu shots to all APS students during the school day. Our goal is to keep all our students healthy and to help fight the flu this season by ensuring that flu shots are available to 100% of APS students.

The copay is $0, so there is no cost to families.

Last year’s flu season was among the worst in more than a decade, and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) recommends a flu shot as everyone’s #1 defense against the flu. We encourage all families to help fight the flu this season – make plans to get a flu shot for your student, either through this in-school program or with your family physician.

The Healthy Schools flu shot clinics will be staffed by qualified nurses who have been trained to care for kids. The nurses are often local to our community and may even be an APS parent! 

The flu shot clinics will be scheduled in schools over the seven days after we return from Thanksgiving Break: Nov. 26 – Dec. 4. Clinic dates for each school are below.

All students were given forms and flyers to take home on Oct. 19, but we know that these sometimes get lost in backpacks.  So, there are two more ways you can find out more about the flu shots and sign up your child to receive the flu shot in school:

  • Check for the flyer and forms that have been posted on Peachjar
  • OR visit: apsvaflu.com.
