A New Partnership to Improve the School-located Vaccination Program
Knox County Health Department is proud to partner with the Metropolitan Drug Commission to establish a donation site to help fund the school flu vaccination program for next school year. You can sponsor one, two or three children to receive a flu vaccination simply by selecting the donation button on this page.
"You may ask, "Why the Metropolitan Drug Commission?" says Karen Pershing, MDC executive director. "The FluMist program fits well with MDC's mission to keep children and their parents healthy and free from drugs.
"Since the FluMist program started seven years ago, no Knox County Schools have closed due to flu. Here at MDC, we think it's important to keep children in school and avoid the bad decisions that sometimes happen when they have too much idle time - such as when schools are closed for illness."
Please consider a donation to keep the school flu vaccination viable for next year. Your donation is tax deductible and you will be helping keep our community healthy. Thank you.
