Starting today, students in East Baton Rouge Parish public schools can get free flu shots. Students who have signed permission slips will get the nasal spray form of the seasonal flu vaccine.
The program starts at Banks Elementary and Winbourne Elementary. The vaccine will be given to every eligible student by Thanksgiving. The vaccines are for seasonal flu and not the swine flu.
