Free flu shots for students

Published: September 21, 2022

Newport News Public Schools is collaborating again with the Health Hero organization to provide free flu shots to all students in kindergarten through 12th grade with signed parental consent. Health Hero will be holding flu shot clinics at each school from 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 submit the form before the scheduled clinic date.

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

Since its launch in 2011, Health Hero has immunized more than one million students. Its goal is to make vaccines readily available to any child, regardless of insurance coverage.

By working together, we can slow the spread of the flu at school and in the community.

For more information about the clinic, please contact your school nurse. For more information about Health Hero, visit
