School Flu Program, Primary & Secondary

Schools image

The Wellness Company, in partnership with the Rhode Island Department of Health and school departments throughout Rhode Island offer flu vaccinations for students. Clinics in all schools (includes public, private, charter and special needs) generally start in early October and are completed in November before Thanksgiving.

In most cases the high school clinics are held during the day for the high school students only. The middle school and elementary students are vaccinated at the evening clinics where the parents and other family members can participate.

There is no out-of-pocket expense for a flu vaccination at a school-located flu clinic. Insurance information will be collected if you are insured but no one is turned away for lack of insurance.

Online registration is available for all school clinics. Pre-registering online eliminates the need to fill out the paperwork when you arrive for your flu shot.
