Flu Vaccination Program

 

The city has sustained its partnership with Borinquen Medical Centers, Miami-Dade County Public Schools, and The Children’s Trust to provide free flu vaccines to youth during afterschool hours and a teacher planning day:  Miami Beach Senior High School, Miami Beach Fienberg Fisher K-8, and Miami Beach Nautilus Middle School.  According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), getting a flu vaccine will not protect against COVID-19, however, flu vaccination has many other important benefits.  Flu vaccines have been shown to reduce the risk of flu illness, hospitalization, and flu-related death in children.  Getting a flu vaccine this fall will be more important than ever, not only to reduce risk from flu but also to help conserve potentially scarce health care resources.

The flu vaccines will be administered at the locations listed below during afterschool hours and on a teacher planning day with a $0 copay.
