Influenza (Flu) Vaccination Information

If your child is uninsured, there is no cost to you for the flu vaccine.   If your child is covered by insurance, including TennCare and private insurance, the County Health Department will file a claim with the insurance plan and receive reimbursement directly from the insurance plan.  There is no out of pocket cost to you for the flu vaccines provided during this school flu vaccination clinic.  

Health Department nurses will vaccinate children and school staff using the injectable (shot) flu vaccine.   Clinics will begin as soon as the vaccine arrives at the health department.  If there are no complications here are the dates the Health Department is planning to be at your schools:

  • Highland Elementary School      September 27, 2022
  • Eastview Elementary School      September 27, 2022
  • Hal Henard Elementary School September 27, 2022
  • Greeneville Middle School         September 28, 2022
  • Greeneville High School              September 28, 2022
  • Tusculum View Elementary       September 29, 2022

If you would like for your child to receive flu vaccine, please click on the following English or Spanish link and complete the consent form.   Be sure to sign the form electronically as this will be your permission for your student to receive the vaccine.   You must fill out a separate consent form for each student you would like to receive the vaccine.    If at a later date you change your mind and do not wish for your child to receive flu vaccine at the school, please notify the Greene County Health Department at 423-798-1749 prior to the clinic date.   This service to the students and staff is being offered to decrease the impact of seasonal flu in our communities and to decrease school absenteeism. 

If you have any questions, please call the Greene County Health Department at 423-798-1749
