RPS has partnered up with local health clinics to provide shots at the district’s elementary and middle schools. The doses are set to be administered later this month and into early October. 

The vaccination offerings in schools are part of an effort led by the Southeast Minnesota Immunization Connection. The 11-county coalition is offering flu shots in all other Olmsted County school districts as well as Pine Island and Kasson Mantorville School Districts. The deadline for signups at those districts is also Wednesday.
