Flu Resources for Schools and Childcare Providers
Each year, an average of 20,000 children under the age of 5 are hospitalized because of flu-related complications. Influenza causes more hospitalizations among young children than any other vaccine-preventable disease. The single best way to protect against seasonal flu and its potential severe complications is for children to get a seasonal influenza vaccine each year. Flu vaccination is recommended for all children aged 6 months and older. Making healthy choices at school and at home can help prevent the flu and spreading flu to others.
Easier Navigation & Interactive Mapping at ShotsForSchool.org
CDPH has revamped its Shots for School website! Navigation is even easier: you can browse by grade level (Child Care, K-12, 7th grade, and now College!) for immunization requirements, tools for schools, and materials for parents and students. There’s also a laws section where you can find regulations, information about exemptions, as well as records, forms, and materials. One of the most helpful features is an interactive map showing CA school immunization rates – www.shotsforschool.org/lookup/
