Free flu shots for students

Posted: September 21, 2022

Newport News Public Schools is again collaborating with the Health Hero organization to provide free flu vaccinations to all students in kindergarten through 12th grade with signed parental consent. Health Hero will conduct onsite flu shot clinics at each school October 3-6.

Parental Consent forms for the free flu clinics were distributed to all students in late August. Parents/guardians are encouraged to review the information and register their students. Early registration is appreciated for accurate counts. Forms will be accepted after the initial deadline, but parents are encouraged to send in the form before the scheduled clinic date.

If health insurance coverage is available to your family, Health Hero will file the claim. Parents/guardians are asked to answer the insurance questions on the permission form. There is no cost or additional paperwork, and parents/guardians are not required to be at school when the flu shot is given to the student.

Since its roll-out in 2011, Health Hero has immunized over one million students. Their goal is to make immunizations readily available to any child regardless of insurance coverage.

Working together, we can decrease the spread of flu at school and in the community.

For more information about the clinic, contact your school nurse. For more information about Health Hero, go to
