LAUSD Will Host Free Flu Shot Clinics For Students
Have you got your flu shot yet? You might be able to get one through your school — if you’re a student or parent in the L.A. Unified School District.
This week, LAUSD campuses will host free flu shot clinics on campuses in East L.A. and Chatsworth … and they’ll pop up in Gardena and Palms next week. Appointments for the shots — which you can click here to schedule — are going fast.
It’s the first time LAUSD has given away flu shots for students. Superintendent Austin Beutner says the need is obvious:
“We are heading to the point where we might have these twin pandemics of seasonal flu on top of COVID-19.”
At Friday’s flu shot clinic, student Moises Gomez also got a coronavirus test.
“I really do suggest everyone comes and takes the COVID-19 test,” Gomez says, “so we can return to classes as soon as possible because there are a lot of people that are struggling online.”
