Everyday Actions to Prevent Flu

While getting the flu vaccine is the best way to prevent the flu, there are other things we can all do every day to prevent getting or spreading the flu viruses and other viruses.


School Flu Information
The Glynn County Health Department will schedule voluntary flu vaccination clinics at county schools in the upcoming months. All enrolled students will be eligible to receive the flu vaccine in an injectable (shot) form and these clinics will be set up with minimal interruption to the school day. If you would like for your student to be vaccinated at the school-based flu vaccination clinic then you should complete, sign, and return the Parental Consent Form to your child’s school as soon as possible. If this consent form is not filled out completely, signed, dated, and returned before the event date, your student will not be vaccinated at the school-based clinic. 

All children are eligible to participate regardless of insurance status. We are asking for insurance information and a copy of your insurance card because we may be able to bill your insurance for a small administration fee to help support school-based flu clinics this year and in the future. If your insurance does not agree to pay the fee or you don’t have insurance you will not be billed by us or your insurance.
