Stop Flu at School
About the Program
Stop Flu at School (SFAS), Hawaii’s school-located vaccination program, is an innovative partnership between the State of Hawaii Departments of Health and Education. The Stop Flu at School program aims to improve the health of Hawaii’s keiki, families, and kupuna by preventing the spread of influenza (flu) through vaccination.
Through the Stop Flu at School program, all children attending participating elementary and middle schools are offered FREE flu vaccine at school, during the school day. The program is voluntary for schools and students.
This program is endorsed by the Hawaii Chapter of the American Academy of Pediatrics and the Hawaii Association of Family Practitioners.
2017 Stop Flu at School (SFAS) Update
Stop Flu at School will be offered to all elementary and intermediate public schools in Kauai, Maui, and Hawaii Counties. On Oahu, the program will be made available to selected public schools. The program will no longer be offered in private schools.
Information packets and vaccination consent forms will be distributed to families in participating schools in early October. Vaccination clinics are scheduled to begin November 1, 2017.
Parents/guardians of school-aged children, especially children that may have other health conditions that place them at higher risk for serious complications due to influenza illness, may contact their child’s healthcare provider about receiving the flu vaccine in their office. Most health insurance plans cover the cost of recommended vaccines. Check with your insurance provider for details of coverage.
