Statewide Flu Vaccination Requirement Dropped

The State of Massachusetts has dropped its flu vaccination requirement for children six years and older.  According to DPH officials, “Preliminary data show that this has been a mild flu season to date, presumably as people have received their seasonal flu vaccine and have been adhering to mask-wearing and social distancing due to COVID-19. Given the intensive Commonwealth-wide efforts regarding COVID-19 vaccination, DPH wants to alleviate the burden to obtain flu vaccination and focus on continuing our COVID-19 vaccination efforts.” As always, parents/guardians are still encouraged to get the flu vaccination for themselves and their children.
