Keep Flu out of School

This initiative was a five-year (2013-2018) cooperative agreement funded by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and directed by NASN in collaboration with Families Fighting Flu and the National Foundation for Infectious Diseases.

This project is focused on the prevention of influenza among elementary school students (K-5).

School nurses are charged with engaging teachers and families to increase their knowledge and awareness of the importance of annual influenza vaccination for everyone 6 months and older. Various communication channels are encouraged, with an emphasis on social media.
