Columbia and Boone’s Public Health and Human Services announced on Thursday that officials have provided thousands of Boone County students with free flu shots this year through its school-based flu clinics.

PHHS nurses vaccinated 9,671 students between Sept. 26 and Nov. 10 in participating elementary, middle and high schools throughout Boone County.

Officials said this is the largest number of students vaccinated by this program since it began in 2009.

However, flu season is not over and adults and children are invited to get a flu shot anytime during weekdays. No appointments are needed, officials said.

PHHS will continue to provide free flu vaccines to all children age six months through 18 years.

Adults 19 and older, cost of the vaccine depends on insurance coverage but self-pay is $25.
