Boca Raton Schools

BOCA RATON, FL ( — The Palm Beach County School Board during its Wednesday meeting debated the appropriate position to take on flu shots for students and staffers during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The final decision: no decision for now, but an understanding that flu shots may be a vital to preventing a “twindemic” in the fall and winter months of students sick with COVID, the flu, or both.

The Palm Beach County School District does require vaccines to attend a school. Officials have been reminding families to remember this as the school year starts. Updated medical forms are required for all students. They are a vital element in permitting students to re-start “in person” education, whenever that occurs.

As for flu shots, the school board expressed a sense that “strongly encouraging” parents to gets shots for the kids — instead of “mandating” flu shots — may be the appropriate course of action.

The School Board is set to revisit the issue in its next scheduled meeting which is in two week.
