Flu Vaccine:

The California Department of Public Health strongly recommends that all students and staff be immunized each autumn against influenza, to help:

  1. Protect the school community

  2. Reduce demands on health care facilities

  3. Decrease illnesses that cannot be readily distinguished from COVID19 and would therefore trigger extensive measures from the school and public health authorities.
