First Aid Manual


Influenza (Flu)

The Seasonal Flu vaccine is more Important Than Ever. Please Get Immunized!

Influenza immunization will be required for all children 6 months of age or older who are attending Massachusetts schools, colleges and universities. The new vaccine requirement is an important step to reduce flu-related illness and ​the overall impact of respiratory illness during the COVID-19 pandemic. 

Students will be expected to have received a flu vaccine by December 31, 2020 for the 2020-2021 influenza season, unless either a medical or religious exemption is provided. Higher education students who are completely off-campus and engaged in remote learning only are also exempt from this. Learn more about this requirement.

Preventing the flu will save lives!
