Shoo the Flu

Shoo the Flu students

Shoo the Flu is a community-based initiative to prevent seasonal influenza in Oakland through a school-based vaccination program. The program offers free flu vaccines, regardless of insurance, to students and on-site school staff at participating schools every fall. All Oakland elementary and K-8 schools, including Oakland Unified School District, charter, and private schools, are invited to participate. This flu season, only the injectable vaccine - the “flu shot” - is recommended so that is what will be offered. Participation in the program is voluntary. To see if your student’s school is participating, please visit

Shoo the Flu is a partnership between the Alameda County Public Health Department, California Department of Public Health, Oakland Unified School District, and other community partners.
