School-based Flu Vaccination Clinic Dates

In December, DHHS will hold vaccination clinics to administer nasal spray flu vaccine (FluMist) for school-aged children only at various locations throughout the county. Parents or guardians must make appointments for their child to receive a vaccination at these clinics either online or by calling 311.

All MCPS elementary schools will host a flu clinic in December.
All clinics are free, but registration is required due to limited vaccine supplies. 


Both the injectable seasonal flu vaccine and nasal spray flu vaccine will be available, at no charge, at other DHHS flu clinics at various locations in the county, October through December. For information about these clinics visit the Montgomery County website.
