Flu-Free Quad Cities
Genesis Flu-Free Quad Cities plays a vital role in keeping our schools and community flu-free by providing free seasonal flu vaccines to elementary school students.
This fall, our goal is to provide free flu shots to 10,000 elementary school students to protect them from seasonal flu. Thanks to generous support from Quad Cities River Bandits and GreenState Credit Union, we are on our way to completing this goal. But we need your help!
This program is 100% charitably funded.
There is no cost to the school district, school, or family to participate. We rely on the generosity of individuals, organizations, grants and businesses to ensure that every child who has parental consent receives their free flu shot.
The cost to provide one shot is $20.
Researchers and public health experts agree that vaccinating children is an essential component for the community containment of seasonal influenza.
For every child that receives a flu vaccine, five more people are protected against the seasonal flu.
That's an important safeguard for those most at-risk of developing a serious flu illness -- children under 6 months old who are too young to be vaccinated, grandparents, pregnant moms, and people with chronic diseases like diabetes, asthma and heart disease. Keeping our community healthy keeps children in school, parents at work and prevents our emergency rooms from being filled with flu-related illnesses.
