Free flu vaccinations will be offered to elementary and middle school students as part of the annual state Stop Flu at School program.
Information packets and vaccination consent forms are being distributed to parents through participating public, private and charter schools. Consent forms must be returned by the Sept. 7 deadline.
Clinics begin in October and continue into December.
The state Department of Health is collaborating with school administrators, health care providers, pediatric associations, health insurers and federal partners to continue the program that vaccinated more than 69,000 Hawaii students last year.
Translations of the consent forms and vaccine information statements are available at the website vaxonlinereg.doh.hawaii.gov. More information is available at flu.hawaii.gov/SFAS.html.
