Keep Flu out of School Toolkit

Keep Flu out of School is a school-based program designed to raise awareness about the burden of influenza (flu) and the benefits of annual vaccination. The long-term outcomes of the project are to: ensure that elementary school children receive an annual influenza vaccination; reduce childhood immunization barriers; and, ultimately increase influenza vaccination coverage rates among children in elementary school – grades K-5.

This e-toolkit offers numerous resources for school nurses and teachers that can be used to raise awareness about the burden of influenza and the benefits of annual vaccination. These resources can also be shared with parents and caregivers as a way to educate local communities about Flu.

This e-toolkit was developed as part of the Keep Flu out of School program under an educational grant from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Keep Flu out of School is a school-based program designed to promote, strengthen, and enhance Flu prevention efforts among elementary school students, their parents, and teachers. The resources herein are intended to complement existing health-related curriculums for elementary school children.
