Worcester Public Schools Flu Vaccination Clinics
Shauna Rice
UMMS Summer Community Service Learning Assistantship

To promote the health of the Worcester
community by providing free influenza vaccines
to Worcester Public School students. Flu clinics
will be held at all Worcester public schools this
Fall over the course of two weeks.

Project Goals

Work with the Worcester Department of Public
Health, Worcester Public School Nursing Staff,
UMass Medical School Students and Clinical
Faculty, and other resources in the Worcester
community to improve communication with parents
about flu clinic opportunities and permission slips.
Coordinate scheduling for flu clinics, including
enhanced recruitment of medically-licensed
professionals.

The single best way to protect your children from the
flu is to get them vaccinated each year.
The seasonal flu vaccine protects against the
influenza viruses that research indicates will be
most common during the upcoming season.
The vaccine protects against three flu viruses; an
influenza A (H1N1) virus, an influenza A (H3N2)
virus, and an influenza B virus.
Another version protects against four viruses: the
same three viruses as the trivalent vaccine and an
additional B virus.
CDC recommends that everyone 6 months of
age and older get a seasonal flu vaccine.
Only those younger than 6 months of age or those
with a severe, life threatening allergy to the flu
vaccine/any of its ingredients should avoid getting a
flu vaccine.

Year

Last year, 1,174/25,076 students received injections from
our clinics (4.7% vaccination rate).
We assume the majority of students are receiving vaccines
elsewhere (PCP office, CVS, etc.)
A goal for future years is to determine where exactly
students are receiving their flu vaccines, if at all.

The Worcester Flu Vaccination Clinics have been in operation
for 4 years, yet vaccination rates have not increased over the
past 3 years. We hope to increase vaccination rates by:
Promoting the clinics at Know Your School Night and
Kindergarten Kickoff with informational handouts.
Simplifying consent forms sent home to parents.
