Hawaii offers flu vaccines for students

By Associated Press

HONOLULU (AP) Flu vaccines will be available to elementary and middle school students across Hawaii.

The state Department of Health's "Stop Flu at School" program vaccinates more than 65,000 students statewide each year.

To sign-up for the free vaccinations, parents or guardians must return signed consent forms to schools by Sept. 6.

Vaccination clinics will be held in October and November.

Health Director Loretta Fuddy says vaccinating children helps protect communities against the flu.

She says with cuts to federal funding, public-private partnerships are important to continue the vaccination program. The health department's partnerships include school administrators, health care providers, pediatric associations and health insurers.
