'NoFlu4U' clinics keep Fayette students healthy

FAYETTE COUNTY, Ga. -- Children in Fayette County schools are saying "no" to the flu this season.

So far, more than 1,000 students and school staff members have received flu vaccines, thanks to the "NoFlu4U" clinics that travel throughout the county.

"The clinics have been very successful this year," said health services specialist Debbie King. "Every vaccination given means a healthier school environment for everyone."

Most children received the nasal vaccine. The famous Chick-fil-A cow traveled with the clinics to put children's minds at ease and show them just how easy it is to protect against the flu.

"If it wasn't for these clinics, many children and adults who received vaccines wouldn't have gotten them because of scheduling constraints with work or other activities," King said.

The NoFlu4U clinics visited 11 elementary schools, two middle schools, the county schools' transportation department and the LaFayette Educational Center this year.
