Vaccination Consent Forms Due Aug. 16

August 6, 2018, 10:30 AM HST (Updated August 6, 2018, 9:21 AM)

The Hawai‘i Department of Health (DOH) will hold flu vaccination clinics in 180 public schools statewide from Oct. 15 through Dec. 7, 2018.

The list of participating schools is available online.

New this year: Vaccination consent forms will be distributed to parents through student orientation or “back to school” packets on the first day of school. Parents or guardians wanting their child to receive a free flu shot should return the completed consent form to their school by Thursday, Aug. 16, 2018.

The annual Stop Flu at School program provides free flu shots to children in kindergarten through grade 8 attending participating schools. Flu vaccination reduces the spread of flu and helps protect those at risk of serious illness.


Parents and guardians of students attending schools that will not have a school-located clinic are encouraged to contact their child’s healthcare provider to receive the flu vaccine in their office.

For more information, call Aloha United Way’s information and referral service at 2-1-1.
