In-School FluMist Program

Each fall the Knox County Health Department (KCHD) partners with Knox County elementary and middle schools, private schools, Head Starts, and child care facilities to offer influenza vaccinations or FluMist in the school setting to eligible children.

Influenza usually enters a community through children, and children are known to be the major transmitter of flu to others. A convenient way for parents to get their children vaccinated, this collaborative effort creates a healthier community and helps keep our children in school and schools open.

The 2015/2016 in-school FluMist program is now complete. If your child has not had a flu vaccine, you may bring him or her to any KCHD location (see the sidebar on the right) to receive one. Please call 865-215-5070 to schedule an appointment.


Consent Forms

Please visit this Web page in the summer for a link to the 2016/2017 online consent form or for a downloadable version of the form.

No child will be vaccinated without a completed, signed and returned consent form. Parents/guardians may complete the form online, which is a time-saver for parents/guardians and will enable KCHD staff to more efficiently manage this complex program. Your participation in the online process is greatly appreciated.

Paper consent forms will be available at the schools or on this Web page in the summer.


Vaccination Clinic Dates

Phase one typically starts in September or October.  Phase Two is usually in November or December. Please check back for the 2016/2017 clinic schedule.
