Flu shots for students

The Washington County Health Department and Johnson City Schools have partnered to provide seasonal influenza (flu) vaccinations at your child’s school. Flu Packets will be sent home with students on Monday, October 14. If you would like for your child to receive an injectable (shot) flu vaccine, please complete the form and return to your child’s school no later than October 25. Please click here to download the form. Tentative dates for the flu clinic are November 14 and 15.

If your child is uninsured, there is no cost to you for the flu vaccine. If your child is covered by insurance, including TennCare and private insurance, the County Health Department will file a claim with the insurance plan and receive reimbursement directly from the insurance plan. There is no out of pocket cost to you for the flu vaccine provided during this school flu vaccination clinic. This service is being provided to decrease the impact of seasonal flu in our communities and to decrease school absenteeism.

If you have any questions, please contact the Washington County Health Department at 423-975-2200.
