Connecticut law states mandatory flu shot for Pre-K students before the new year

Health

Connecticut state law is making flu shots for Pre-K students between the ages of 2 and 4 mandatory. Kids have until Monday to get the vaccine or they won’t be able to go back to school. 

To protect you and your kids from the flu, the city of New Haven wll hold a flu clinic at the Health Department building on 54 Meadow street from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.  

Right now, we are in the midst of flu season and doctors say one of the best ways to stay protected is to get the vaccine.  

Connecticut state law requires them to get a flu shot by Monday before going back to the school in the new year. 

Officials say every year in the U.S., 20,000 kids between the ages of 2 and 4 are hospitalized with severe cases of the flu. 

The law is getting mixed reaction.
