Flu shots in 4 schools to be rescheduled

Four Houston County elementary schools scheduled to provide seasonal flu vaccines Wednesday and today were postponed because of a vaccine shipment not arriving, according to a school news release.

Clinics for Russell, Shirley Hills, Bonaire and Hilltop elementary schools will be rescheduled at a later date.

The Houston County Hot Shots Coalition has been offering the flu vaccine on school campuses, with the seasonal flu shot and nasal FluMist available at all 37 public schools, from Oct. 1 and will continue through Nov. 5.

Parents of elementary schoolchildren are encouraged to be present for the vaccination, the release said. Any parent is welcome at the vaccine clinic and may also obtain the vaccine after all of the children are vaccinated.
