Why Immunizations Matter to your School

The Health Hero program was developed with the sole focus on delivering safe, efficient immunization programs for schools to raise vaccination rates and lower student absenteeism. This simple and effective program can reduce illness, especially highly contagious influenza (flu) outbreaks.

Studies have shown that immunizations are a critical factor to student success, which is why many governments, departments of health, and legislatures are encouraging all schools to participate in vaccination programs like ours.

We ask school leaders to ask themselves these questions:

  • What is the impact to your school system if it had to close for a week or more?

  • What is the educational impact to students and your testing scores with just a measurable rise in absenteeism?

With the recent COVID-19 outbreak, we know many of you recently had to answer these very questions. Together, we can mitigate preventable contagions like influenza outbreaks by partnering to offer vaccinations to our students – including those without insurance coverage.

How it Works

We manage the process from end-to-end and provide our services at no cost to schools and families. We work with the parent’s insurance companies to bill them back for any children covered under their parents, and we work with the state to provide free vaccinations for those children whose parents do not have insurance.

The process is very streamlined and simple. For school leaders, we only ask that you:

  1. Pass out parent consent forms
  2. Collect all forms back and review for completeness
  3. Contact Health Hero with number of participants

Health Hero will work with you to develop a sensible clinic schedule. Our program is easily scalable as we handle school systems with as few as a couple of locations to large city school districts. Clinics generally last under 90 minutes per school and students are out of the classroom for only 10-15 minutes.

What We Offer

In additional to influenza, we also provide clinics for required immunizations and boosters such as TDaP, Meningococcal, and HPV to ensure students are in compliance and not kept out of school. Our services are available during the following months for the 2020 – 2021 school year:
